Martin Huggon

Martin is Associate Tutor in Archaeology and Heritage at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln, with a particular focus on field archaeology and the archaeology of the later medieval period, especially the archaeology of religious life and hospitality, medicine and health, poverty, and the crusades. He recently completed his doctoral thesis at the University of Sheffield, titled The Archaeology of the Medieval Hospitals of England and Wales, 1066-1546. It was through his doctoral thesis and also being part of the Thornton Abbey project team for over 7 years that really sparked his interest in the archaeology of religious life in all its various forms, particularly how space was used and encoded in the wider religious precincts of churches, monasteries, chapels, hospitals, and other establishments. As well as continuing to publish his work on hospitals, Martin is also currently investigating the archaeology and structures of the military orders in England and Wales.
