Martin graduated from the University of Winchester with a degree in Archaeological Practice in 2004. After leaving university Martin worked initially as a Site Assistant for a company based in Milton Keynes before joining the Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service Field Team where he worked on a range of both urban and rural sites, including the Saxon wet docks in Ipswich.
In 2008 Martin re-joined the company based in Milton Keynes as a Project Officer and led a number of large evaluations and excavations; including the excavation of three Bronze Age burnt mounds prior to the extension of Birmingham International Airport. Since becoming a Project Officer, Martin has completed a number of publication reports for regional journals including a medieval industrial complex in Hertfordshire; a Neolithic/Bronze Age cemetery in Northamptonshire and a Late Iron Age settlement in Milton Keynes. Whilst living in Buckinghamshire Martin setup and led a community archaeology project exploring the early origins of the village of Wing in Buckinghamshire, the project blossomed into the establishment of a Heritage Group that now has over 70 members.
Before joining Suffolk Archaeology in 2016 Martin was working as the Community Archaeologist on a region wide Heritage Lottery Funded project exploring the archaeology of the 8th US Army Air Force during their time in East Anglia in WW2. Martin has a particular interest in Community Archaeology and Saxon, medieval and Second World War archaeology.
