David Morgan Evans

David Morgan Evans (1944–2017) was a graduate of Cardiff University (1963–1966) before pursuing postgraduate research on the archaeology of early Welsh poetry. Evans was an assistant director of the South Cadbury excavations led by Professor Leslie Alcock. He joined the Inspectorate of Ancient Monuments and Historic Buildings in Wales in 1969, transferred to the English Inspectorate in 1977 and became General Secretary of the Society of Antiquaries of London from 1992 until his retirement in 2004, after which he continued to lecture at UCL, Birkbeck and the University of Chester, and was appointed Visiting Professor at the latter from 2006. In retirement, Evans co-instigated fieldwork at the Pillar of Eliseg, at Llantysilio yn Iâl, Denbighshire. He was also known for his media activities which focused on two television shows involving the building of replica Roman buildings, the first at Buster: Rebuilding the Past, which resulted in his book Rebuilding the Past. A Roman Villa (Metheun, 2003); and a second at Wroxeter Roman City: Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day.
