The core Project Team will work under the direction of David Carter (Senior Project Manager), and will include key researchers from each department involved: Prof Mark Jobling (Senior Research Fellow in Genetics); Dr Joanna Story (Senior Lecturer in Early Medieval History); Dr Simon James (Reader in Archaeology); Dr Phillip Shaw (Lecturer in English Language and Old English) plus Dr Jayne Carroll (Director of the Institute for Name Studies, University of Nottingham).

Information on the very experienced technical staff that will support all phases of the project is detailed in the table below. The membership of the technical team will flex in line with the demands of the project.
Regular reviews will be undertaken of progress, actions, risks, issues, deliverables and plans with reports to the Project Board. The Technical Team will meet at least fortnightly or as required.
