Meet our Authors: Wendy Morrison – June 2017

Wendy A. Morrison holds a DPhil from the University of Oxford, and is currently a Post-doctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford’s Institute of Archaeology. She has worked in both commercial and research archaeology since 2007, and has excavated all over Britain, as well as the Channel Islands and in India. She lectures at the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education, and is currently the Director of the Great Ouse Ancient Landscape (GOAL) project. Her research interests include zoomorphic art in prehistory, integrated GIS mapping of developer-funded excavation, and the archaeological expressions of ancient worldviews.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Wendy has authored Complex Assemblages, Complex Social Structures: Rural Settlements in the Upper and Middle Thames Valley 100BC to AD100, which examines the rural settlements of the period through the lens of cultural theory in order to tease out the more nuanced and diverse human landscape that the material suggests.

Wendy describes the experience of publishing with Cambridge Scholars:

“I found working with Cambridge Scholars to be the most pain-free publication process I’ve ever engaged with. Their staff provided me with step by step guidance in the preparation of my submission, and they were helpful when suggesting alterations during their review phase. I particularly enjoyed the freedom to suggest the cover art, and the way the team sent me mock-ups to approve was stellar. The cradle-to-grave support and the truly professional look of the final product was first rate. And receiving a royalties payment after the first year (I’d forgotten it was coming!) was a real treat. Highly recommended!”
