Lee Waters BA

Archaeologist

Lee WatersLee trained as an Archaeologist with the University of Reading field school and the Silchester ‘town life’ project between 2012-2015. The uniquely undisturbed Roman Town of Calleva Atrebatum gave Lee extensive training in complex multi-phase single context archaeology. For the 2014 season he was brought on by the project as a Trainee Assistant Supervisor.

Lee entered into commercial archaeology when he joined AOC in September 2015 and became a permanent member of staff in June 2017. Lee was initially brought on as an Archeologist for the Clandon Park salvage operation and has since gained experience in numerous areas of the archaeological process. Lee has worked on urban and rural sites in London and across the country. Most notably the excavation and watching brief at Walsingham House on Seething Lane. Built upon the foundations of the East India Trading Company warehouse and the cemetery of St Olave’s church, Hart Street. This site gave Lee experience in the recording of human remains as well as in further experience in complex multi-phase single context recording.

Most recently Lee has been involved in post-excavation processing. Here he has widened his knowledge base, gaining a greater understanding of the archaeological process as a whole. Lee has also become adept in finds and environmental sample processing, and cataloguing of the archaeological materials. He has also spent time on walkover surveys and in archive research for the consultancy team. As a result he has been involved in aiding the consultancy team in analysing the potential heritage impact of intrusive works.
