Scott Lomax

Scott Lomax Archaeology is largely run by Scott Lomax, with occasional assistance from other fully qualified archaeologists when workloads require further professional support.

Scott Lomax BA (Hons)
Scott Lomax graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2004, achieving a BA (Hons) degree in Archaeology and Prehistory. Since then he has worked on excavations in North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Suffolk, Leicester, South Leicestershire and Nottingham, developing a comprehensive knowledge of urban and rural sites. Scott has extensive experience of excavating Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman, Saxon, medieval and post medieval sites (including industrial archaeology).

Between 2008 and 2010 Scott created the Nottingham Urban Archaeological Database (UAD); an important archaeological tool detailing Nottingham's heritage assets and archaeological interventions in the historic core of the city. The project was funded by English Heritage and Nottingham City Council. After creating the UAD Scott went on to become the archival expert for the Nottingham Caves Survey project, a project to better understand Nottingham's extensive manmade cave systems. During this research project Scott uncovered new information about more than 60 caves which had previously been unidentified.

Scott has since created the Nottingham Historic Environment Record, worked on the Origins of Nottingham project and contributed to the archaeology and caves policies within Nottingham City Council's Local Development Framework.

Scott has worked as project manager on The Cranbrook Conundrum: Dating Nottingham's Unmarked Cemetery, Life and Death in Medieval Nottingham and Defining Nottingham's Medieval Defences projects. Scott is an expert in researching complex information using a wide range of resources.
