My name’s Paul Tubb and I’m a tutor in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Bristol. I’m the Course Tutor for the Certificate Year 2 element of the Part-Time Degree and teach on a number of undergraduate and postgraduate units including The Archaeology of Ritual and Religion, The Neolithic of North-West Europe, Post-Excavation Techniques, Landscape Archaeology and supervise a number of research students.
My first degree was History with Associated Archaeology (King Alfred’s College, Winchester) and I have gone on to study at the University of Leicester, University of Greenwich and the University of Bristol where I was awarded my Doctorate in 2009. I hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Further and Adult Ed).
My doctoral dissertation investigated the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age of the Vale of Pewsey, Wiltshire, in Southern England where I undertook an extensive programme of fieldwork and archival reassessment. My findings have been recently published as British Archaeological Report BAR (British Series) 543.
I have been involved in field archaeology in central southern England since 1981 and have excavated at a number of sites including South Lodge Camp, Cranborne Chase, Stonehenge, and Winchester. I am primarily a landscape archaeologist and a prehistorian. I specialise in non-intrusive fieldwork and my current interests include field systems, linear earthworks and their meaning, hillforts and enclosures, cairns and round barrows and the prehistory of the British uplands.
I am a Mountain Leader (Summer), spending as much time as I can in the diminishing wild places of these islands. I am a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Unit Manager Expedition Supervisor and Assessor. I fish (both coarse and fly), canoe, am a keen photographer and I also enjoy spending time in wild parts of the world and have recently travelled in Iceland, the French and Italian Alps, the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, USA and the Ladakh region of the Indian Himalaya.
