Lloyd has been involved in many CLAS archaeological projects both in the UK and abroad.

XRF investigation of the Geochemistry of Lava Stepping and Threshold Stones in Pompeii, Italy

In collaboration with the Universities of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Cincinnati, this project was to determine the geochemistry of the lava stepping stones and building threshold stones found at Pompeii, Italy, to characterise any differences between them and to use this data to establish their possible provenance

Geophysical Survey at Stutfall Castle, the Roman Fort at Lympne, Kent

During 2015, Lloyd conducted the first full magnetic survey of the interior of the Roman fort at Lympne, Kent. Known locally as Stutfall Castle, it is one of several important Saxon Shore forts along Britain's east and south-east coast. The final report can be downloaded here.

Corinium Museum Cirencester – Food for Thought Exhibition

Lloyd has been using the department’s 3D laser scanning technology to create animations of selected objects on display in the Food for Thought exhibition at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester.

XRF Analysis of the Basalt Paving Stones of Via Biberatica, Trajan's Market, Rome

This project, led by Professor Ray Laurence, seeks to establish a better understanding of the supply of paving stones to the city of Rome through non-destructive geo-chemical analysis of paving stones using a hand-held portable XRF analyser.

AHRC Methodologies for Material Culture IV: Warfare and Technology

Lloyd led a workshop on 3D laser scanning, with practical hands on session, for the AHRC-funded Methodologies for Material Culture IV: Warfare and Technology. This was one of a series of workshops organised by Dr Catherine Richardson, School of English, University of Kent.

The Three Peak Sanctuaries of Central Crete Project

Lloyd has been involved in Dr Evangelos Kyriakidis’ Three Peak Sanctuaries of Central Crete project. Lloyd’s work has ranged from office based work at the Canterbury campus preparing drawings for publication, as well as fieldwork on Crete, laser scanning Minoan figurines and the peak sanctuaries themselves.

Settlement and Society on the Lincolnshire Wolds

Since joining the department in 2009, Lloyd has conducted four seasons of geophysical survey for Dr Steve Willis’s Settlement and Society on the Lincolnshire Wolds project. Lloyd’s ongoing involvement in this project has seen the production of many plans and photographs enter publication, most recently in The Roman Roadside Settlement and Multi-Period Ritual Complex at Nettleton and Rothwell, Lincolnshire.

The Campus Landscape Survey Project

The Campus Landscape Survey Project, which is part of the University of Kent's Creative Campus Initiative, is a short project with the aim of increasing our understanding of the archaeology of the campus, as well as its context within the wider landscape. The survey will be carried out by volunteer students of CLAS, who will have the opportunity to gain experience in many types of archaeological survey, including metric, geophysical and photographic survey.

Canterbury Roman Museum

Lloyd is currently photographically recording Canterbury Roman Museums's collection. These photographs will be used to support teaching within CLAS.
