 Howard Brooks



My association with the University of Essex goes back to 1999, when I took over direction of the Certificate in British Archaeology, then taught out of the Dept of Continuing Education (later Lifelong Learning). The role developed into 'Lead Archaeologist' , in that I organised the programmes and found guest tutors to contribute. The Certificate Course came to an end with the dissolution of Lifelong Learning in 2005. Dept of History took up the slack in 2008, when, under Alison Rowlands and Chris Thornton, I was invited to contribute archaeological modules to the Certificate in Local Historical Studies. This I did until 2015. I then became Visiting Fellow in 2015, and Community Fellow in 2017. My lecturing work with Essex is not my main job. Since 1975, I have mostly been a 'career archaeologist', and am now Deputy Director at Colchester Archaeological Trust.
