Research interests

Dr Tony Pollard is the Director of the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology and a Senior Lecturer in the History Subject at the University of Glasgow. Tony is convener of the MLitt in Battlefield and Conflict Archaeology run through the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology, the first MLitt course of its type. He has carried out battlefield and conflict related archaeological projects in the UK, mainland Europe, Africa and South America. His interests range from 18th century warfare, particularly in relation to the Jacobite rebellions in Scotland, to the archaeology of the First and Second World Wars. On behalf of the Australian Army he directed the programmes of survey and evaluation which brought to light the WWI mass graves of Australian and British troops at Fromelles in France. Other recent projects directed by Tony include the excavation of a First World War dug out near Ypres, the first archaeological project to be carried out within the town of Fort William and a community based  investigation of the site on the Battle of Prestonpans. Tony has written widely for both popular and academic audiences.
