Fraser Hunter Fraser Hunter is principal curator of Iron Age and Roman collections. His undergraduate degree and PhD are both from Bradford University, and he has worked at the National Museum since 1991.
Fraser has led a series of excavations to understand the impact of Rome on the local population, notably on the major hillfort of Traprain Law (with colleagues from Bradford University and CFA Archaeology) and on the Iron Age settlements of Birnie and Clarkly Hill (Moray). The work in Moray has revealed two of the area's power centres, with contacts to Rome seen in a wide range of material, including silver coin hoards.
He also develops new approaches to existing finds, in order to get more information from them. Currently, he is managing the re-examination of the hoard of late Roman silver from Traprain Law by an international team of experts. He is also collaborating on a catalogue of Roman finds from non-Roman sites in Scotland as part of an international research project.
Iron Age material culture. Fraser researches a wide range of Iron Age and Roman finds with a focus on the use of jet and related materials, an understudied area. Post-excavation work on new discoveries serves to push forward best practice and create a better understanding of their interpretation. This leads to reconsideration of many aspects of later prehistoric material culture, and ensures finds in National Museums Scotland's collections are constantly re-examined in the light of new data.
