"Detailed Research Profile
Julian Thomas was born in Epsom in 1959, and educated at the Universities of Bradford (BTech in Archaeological Sciences, 1981) and Sheffield (MA 1982, PhD 1986). His doctoral research was concerned with social and economic change in the Neolithic of Wessex and the Upper Thames valley. He was a lecturer in archaeology at the University of Wales , Lampeter between 1987 and 1993, and taught at Southampton University from 1994 to 2000. He took up the Chair of Archaeology at Manchester in April 2000.
Julian's main research interests are concerned with the Neolithic period in Britain and north-west Europe, and with the theory and philosophy of archaeology. His major preoccupation throughout his career has been with finding ways of understanding prehistoric societies which confront the prejudices and assumptions of the contemporary west. Themes within this broader set of concerns include landscape and monumentality; the archaeology of death; the social role of material culture; the body, personhood and identity; the relationship between archaeology and anthropology; the history of archaeological thought; the contemporary political significance of archaeology; and the use of hermeneutic, phenomenological, feminist and post-structuralist philosophies in archaeology. He has recently published a study of the relationship between archaeology and modernity, which explores the connections between archaeological knowledge and the modern condition.
Throughout his career, Julian has been involved in field archaeology. Between 1994 and 2002 he was director of a collaborative project with Historic Scotland, concerned with the investigation of a series of prehistoric monuments in Dumfries and Galloway. The first three of these sites, the henge at the Pict's Knowe, the cursus complex at Holywood, and the post alignments at Holm, form the basis for a monograph which is nearing completion. The second phase of the project (from summer 1999 onwards) involved the sample excavation of a late Neolithic enclosure complex at Dunragit, near Stranraer. More recently, he has become one of the directors of the Stonehenge Riverside Project, together with Mike Parker Pearson (Sheffield), Joshua Pollard (Bristol), Colin Richards (Manchester), Chris Tilley (UCL) and Kate Welham (Bournemouth). Within this project, he has undertaken a re-excavation of the southern timber circle within the great henge of Durrington Walls, and in 2006 investigated two hengiform enclosures inside the Durrington monument. These proved to contain small buildings surrounded by timber palisades.
Julian is Vice Chair of the Standing Committee for Archaeology, which represents university archaeology within the UK. He was a Vice President of the Royal Anthropological Institute between 2001 and 2004, and remains a member of the RAI Council. He was the Secretary of the World Archaeological Congress between 1994 and 1999. He is a life member of the Collingwood Society, and is Associate Director of the AHRB Research Centre for Textile Conservation and Textile Studies. He is editor of the Routledge series, 'Themes in Archaeology', which has recently published volumes by Chris Fowler, Gavin Lucas and Tim Insoll.
Julian welcomes enquiries from prospective research students interested in British and European prehistory, or any aspect of archaeological theory.
In his spare time Julian enjoys the countryside, reading, music, swimming, and the company of his small children.
