Eddie Procter is currently undertaking a full-time PhD, having obtained a doctoral studentship at the University of Exeter. Having pursued a career in university administration and management, he finally took the plunge into full-time academic research in 2015 to follow his long-time interest in landscape history and cultural landscapes. Prior to this he completed a part-time MSc in Applied Landscape Archaeology at the University of Oxford in 2007, gaining a distinction. His MSc dissertation examined the landscape impact of Llanthony Priory in the Black Mountains and resulted in an article published in the Archaeology in Wales journal.
His PhD research project is entitled Topographical legacies of monasticism: evolving perceptions and realities of monastic landscapes in the southern Welsh Marches, and seeks to combine landscape history and archaeology with cultural geography approaches – a deep topography – to provide a comprehensive analysis of the complex landscapes of the study area.
