Dr Aaron Watson-
Aaron founded Monumental in 2002, initially as a research organization. Since completing a doctorate in landscape archaeology at the University of Reading in 2000 he has continued to explore how the means by which the past is communicated can directly impact upon its interpretation. This has been informed by a series of research projects, including award winning investigations into the acoustics of Stonehenge and other ancient buildings. Today, he continues to develop innovative approaches to film, photography and animation and has gained international recognition for converging archaeological research, heritage presentation and artistic practice.

Aaron has been invited to present research papers and exhibit his work in the UK, Europe and the USA and has appeared on radio and TV in many archaeological documentaries. To learn more about Aaron click his Timeline >
