Archaeologist and Anthropologist
Working in Archaeology since 1982 Tom Lawrence gained extensive knowledge in many historical periods but specialized in early man finding prehistoric remains in areas in the UK that they were not previously thought to have existed due to the ice age. In 1998 he moved to Egypt, where he has lived since, to work on a project that visually reconstructed the central area of Amarna, the city of the Pharaoh Akhenaten.
In addition to being a trained archaeologist he also has a diploma in Egyptology. A Fellow of both the Royal Anthropological Institute and the Royal Geographical Society member of the Egyptian Exploration Society and the Council for British Archaeology he is currently Head of Field Studies for the Siwan Peoples Foundation which examines and explores evidence of early man around the Siwa Oasis and surrounding areas.
