Annelise and Andrew have been making their research available through the on-line publishing service of Blurb. Copies can be ordered directly from the Blurb web site. See Publications page. We are currently working on a version for ipad to be available through iBooks.


In May 2017 we published transcriptions of memoirs kept by Annelise's great-great grandfather, William Masters Hardy.

WM Hardy was a master builder and antiquarian who lived in Swanage, Dorset and was the author of Old Swanage, or Purbeck Past and Present and Smuggling Days in Purbeck.



Andrew and Annelise Fielding both trained as archaeologists.


Annelise read classics and became the Archaeological Field Officer for Hereford and Worcester County Council.

Andrew studied archaeology and having learned to dive, worked as Deputy Archaeological Director at the Mary Rose Trust from 1977 to 1989. Working for Vale Royal Borough Council Andrew secured a £4.96M grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2006 and from 2011-3 he assisted Age UK Oldham secure £1.3m from the HLF for the restoration of George Street Chapel.  He is a Member of the Institute for Archaeology, sits on the CBA-NW Industrial Archaeology Panel and in 2016 became an Honorary Research Associate at Salford University.

Andrew and Annelise Fielding established A&A Fielding in 2009.
