Digging into Archaeological Data and Image Search Metadata


Professor Julian Richards

jrichardsProfessor Julian Richards, is Director of the Archaeology Data Service, and Co-Director of the ejournal Internet Archaeology. He is not to be confused with Julian “Meet the Ancestors” Richards.

Julian originally intended to study History at University but claims that swiching to Archaeology and Anthropology (which he studied at Cambridge) was one of the best decisions he ever made.  He first came to York to take part in the Coppergate Viking excavations, but after a brief spell at the University of Leeds he returned to York in 1986 to lecture on Anglo-Saxon and Viking archaeology. The Department has grown tremendously from when he first joined, when he was only one of 5 staff members with around a dozen students. It now has over 60 staff, with over 300 undergraduates and 100 graduate students. Nonetheless it has managed to retain a small community feel.
