Dr Heather Sebire FSA is currently Archaeology Officer at Guernsey Museum. A Classics graduate from London University she worked in archaeology in London and Wessex before moving to Guernsey. Since taking up the post of Archaeology Officer at Guernsey Museum she has regularly written and broadcast about the archaeology of Guernsey and the other Channel Islands. She has published papers in various journals and recently completed The Archaeology and Early History of the Channel Islands for Tempus Books. During her career at Guernsey Museum she became aware of the importance of the large archive of the Lukis family that was in the care of the museum and so undertook doctoral research which was completed in 2004. This book is the culmination of that work.
