Professor Tony Pollard


Tony Pollard is Professor of Conflict Archaeology and History, and Director of the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology, at the University of Glasgow.

He is convener of the Centre’s postgraduate MLitt in Conflict Archaeology and Heritage, lectures in military history to undergraduates and is a PhD supervisor. He has carried out battlefield and conflict related archaeological projects in the UK, mainland Europe, Africa and South America. His interests range from 18th century warfare, particularly in relation to the Jacobite rebellions in Scotland, to the cultural heritage of the Falklands War.

On behalf of the Australian Army, he directed the survey and evaluation that brought to light the First World War mass graves of Australian troops at Fromelles, in France. He is currently lead academic for Waterloo Uncovered, a project engaging military veterans in the archaeological investigation of the iconic 1815 battlefield.

Tony first brought battlefield archaeology to an international audience through the BBC TV series Two Men in a Trench, which he co-presented with Neil Oliver. He continues to appear in television documentaries on military history and archaeology. Professor Pollard has written widely for both popular and academic audiences and is co-founder and co-editor of the Journal of Conflict Archaeology.
