James Stuart Taylor



I completed my PhD in 2016, looking at intra-site spatiotemporal analysis of complex stratigraphy. My research focussed upon data from the well known Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük, Turkey and sought to use GIS and related technologies to examine the way in which we structure, use and query temporal aspects of the projects excavation data. Currently, alongside my other research I work as the Co-Field Director of the Çatalhöyük Research Project. In this role I help to coordinate and direct the excavation and general site logistics, management of excavators, development and implementation of excavation methods and post-excavation work. Prior to this I worked as a professional archaeologist since 1998. I spent several years in the UK commercial sector working for Birmingham Archaeology (then B.U.F.A.U., 1999-2000) and Pre-Construct Archaeology (London, 2000-2004). Around 2004 I became a freelance archaeologist working for various large research projects, which has afforded me the opportunity to work extensively in Italy, Iceland, Turkey, Egypt and the Middle East. I graduated with a BA (Hons.) in Archaeology from the University of Nottingham in 1997 and with an MA in Field Archaeology from the University of York in 1998.
