Neil Christie is Professor in Medieval Archaeology at the University of Leicester. He is the current Reviews Editor to the MSRG as well as to the Society for Medieval Archaeology (SMA) and thus is kept fairly busy! His research interests cover late Roman to medieval themes, whether urban, rural and military, and with special emphasis on Mediterranean archaeology. Fairly recently he oversaw a major AHRC-funded project centred on the origins, growth and decline of the town of Wallingford in south Oxfordshire (published by the SMA in 2013). Recent key publications include: (co-edited with P Diarte Blasco), Interpreting Transformations of People and Landscapes in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages: Archaeological Approaches and Issues (Oxbow Books: Oxford, 2018) and (co-edited with H. Herold), Fortified Settlements in Early Medieval Europe: Defended Communities of the 8th-10th Centuries. (Oxbow Books, Oxford, 2016).
