Richard Buckley

Richard, from the University of Leicester, is the lead archaeologist on the Greyfriars project. He graduated from the University of Durham in 1979 and became a Field Officer with Leicestershire Archaeological Unit in 1980, gaining considerable fieldwork and post-excavation experience and co-directing a major multi-period urban excavation in Leicester in 1988-9.

In 1995 he was co-founder of University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) and specialises in urban sites and historic buildings. Most recently, he has been consultant and project manager for the £4 million Highcross Leicester project, involving excavation of the three largest archaeological sites in the City so far.

His publications include Leicester Town Defences, Leicester Castle Hall, Leicester Abbey and his most recent, Visions of Ancient Leicester. Richard has also published numerous reports within LAHS, a journal which he edited between 1991 and 2003.
