Neville has been working as a MOLA Senior Geomatician since 2008. He is involved in the management of spatial data at all stages of the archaeological process, including site work, digitising and creating ArcGIS projects for analysis, and preparing figures. Neville uses AutoCAD and GIS systems on a regular basis and is skilled in the use of survey equipment, including GPS kit and laser scanners. He is also able to take samples for archaeomagnetic dating.
Neville has worked on several historic buildings, including Knole House in Kent, sections of the London City Wall and the Old Milk Factory in Bath. These projects involved a variety of 3D survey techniques including laser scanning and using an rEDM (reflectorless total station). In addition to carrying out the surveys, he has worked with the resulting 3D data to produce sets of detailed plans and elevations. As well as studying archaeology, Neville gained BA (Hons) degrees in Graphic Design (first class) and Fine Art (Painting) and taught illustration at Great Yarmouth College of Art. Before becoming a full time member of the Geomatics team, Neville worked as a field archaeologist and senior archaeologist for MOLA from 1999, and from 2001 split his time between the field, Drawing Office and Geomatics teams.
