Bob Silvester is the current president of the Medieval Settlement Research Group. He was Deputy Director of the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust until his retirement in 2016. Responsible for the study of medieval rural settlement in east Wales in a Wales-wide programme initiated by Cadw that spanned several years around 2000, he published the results in a multi-authored volume entitled Lost Farmsteads (2006) and analysed the histories of the smaller village settlements of north-east and east Wales, again for Cadw. Other research interests include historic landscapes and church archaeology.
