Richard Hewitt holds a BSc from University College, London, UK (Archaeology, 1997), a Master's degree from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK (Archaeology and GIS, 2006), and a PhD from the University of Alcalá, Spain (Geographical Information Technologies, 2014). He worked for over 10 years as a commercial archaeologist in the UK. He now works as an applied researcher in land use science and environmental sustainability. His main research areas currently relate to land use and environmental modelling, but he continues to be involved in archaeological research. His work is largely integrative and collaborative in nature, and he welcomes collaboration in any of his key areas of interest.
