General Experience

I have been indexing since the 1980s and have been shortlisted three times for the Wheatley Medal for indexing. I have a Cambridge honours degree in archaeology and art history. I mainly index journals but occasionally take on book indexes in my specialist subjects if the deadlines are not too tight.

Subjects

Archaeology

I have many years of experience in indexing archaeological monographs and periodicals. I am the regular indexer for the journals Vernacular Architecture and Journal of the British Archaeological Association and for the county journals Sussex Archaeological Collections and Proceedings of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society.

Art History

The history of art and architecture was my final degree subject and I have indexed a wide range of books in this field, from monographs on Piero di Cosimo and Gabriel Metsu to studies of railway station and prison architecture. I am the regular indexer for the journals Vernacular Architecture and Journal of the British Archaeological Association.

Local History

I have much experience in indexing UK local history, with particular expertise on Sussex, London and Cambridgeshire.
