Judith is the Editor for the e-journal  Internet Archaeology. She  has a BA in Archaeology (Liverpool, 1993) and an MSc in Archaeomaterials  (Sheffield, 1996). She has carried out fieldwork and excavation in France, Israel and across the UK. Judith embarked on PhD research at Sheffield and while there, was one of the founding editors of the postgraduate journal  ‘assemblage’. However a vacancy for Assistant Editor for Internet Archaeology  was advertised fairly early on in her research in 1998 and she chose to follow her developing interest in publication. She became Editor of Internet Archaeology  in June 1999.
