Rik Hoggett has been an archaeologist for ten years, during which time he has conducted a wide range of fieldwork across southern England. A double graduate of Bristol University, for a number of years he was a director of the Sedgeford Project, investigating the Anglo-Saxon origins of a north-west Norfolk village. This led on to his soon-to-be-completed PhD at the University of East Anglia, examining the historical and archaeological evidence for the Christianization of East Anglia. He teaches Landscape Archaeology in the School of History, UEA, at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels.
