Anwen Cooper’s main research interests are the later Bronze and Iron Ages in north-west Europe, interpretative approaches to material culture and landscape, critical approaches to archaeological practice, and prehistoric pottery. Following ten years of fieldwork (survey and excavation) from 1996-2006, her PhD offered a multidisciplinary perspective on research in British prehistory over the last 40 years. For the last five years she has been the prehistoric specialist on the ERC-funded English Landscape and Identities project (EngLaId), University of Oxford. Anwen has worked closely with artists and members of the public throughout her career, most recently collaborating with Miranda Creswell and Nathalie Joffre. She has also worked persistently to make connections between research different archaeological arenas – she currently advises on research practices in Historic England and at Oxford Archaeology, and is working with Stewart Bryant to produce a history of Historic Environment Records.
