Steve Trow

Steve was a member of Historic England’s Executive Team and its Director of Research until retirement in 2018.

He was Inspector of Ancient Monuments for the New Forest (and beyond) in the 1990s and was later responsible for rural and environmental policy at English Heritage. He also worked as an archaeologist for the Museum of London and The British Museum. Steve is a staunch advocate for social inclusion in relation to history and landscapes and has a keen interest in the heritage of the countryside and the relationship of the natural and historic environments.

Steve currently sits on advisory groups for the National Trust and the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists. He was awarded an OBE for services to heritage in 2019.

Steve and his wife live in Southampton and have been keen visitors and walkers in the New Forest for nearly 30 years. Since retirement he has also volunteered regularly with the National Park Authority.
