The project is being led by a core group of 11 specialists in battelfied archaeology and artefact conservation and analysis.

Principal Investigator
Rob Janaway (University of Bradford)
Lecturer in archaeological sciences, trained conservator; conservation of freshly excavated material from world war I battlefields; coordinated research on soils and corrosion retention of battlefield-related artefacts (Bosworth). Scientific input to steering committee (EH-funded 3808RFRA Conflict in the Pre-Industrial Landscape project).

Co-Investigator
Dr. Andrew Wilson (University of Bradford)
Lecturer in archaeological sciences, trained conservator; researcher corrosion of metalwork within the vadose zone (EH-funded impact of agrochemicals project). Soils analysis and artefact assessment for Bosworth project, with reference to historic landuse. AHRC/EPSRC Science & Heritage funded studentship (sustainable radiography Ė PI).

Network Coordinator
Dr. Glenn Foard (University of Leeds)

Visiting lecturer Institute for Medieval Studies, Leeds; Consultant in battlefield and landscape archaeology; previous experience in management of archaeological heritage as County Archaeologist for Northamptonshire; project management of comprehensive battlefield surveys; specialist advisor on battlefield sites to government bodies; specialist analysis of lead munitions.
