John's work with English Heritage is focused on recent military heritage, and the role of characterization in managing change in England's landscape; recognising that change and creation are inevitable and unavoidable processes, that the heritage sector must work with, and not against. Beyond his English Heritage responsibilities John has projects that include Cold War peace camps at Greenham Common and Nevada, a former Stasi prison compound in Berlin, and amongst the former bars and music halls of Valletta (Malta). Increasingly, John is working with contemporary artists, and has published articles and books on various aspects of contemporary archaeology.
