Dr Joshua Pollard FSA is a British archaeologist, who is currently Senior Lecturer and Head of Archaeology at the University of Bristol. He gained his BA and PhD in Archaeology from the Cardiff University, and has specialised in the archaeology of the Neolithic period in the UK and north-west Europe, especially in relation to the study of depositional practices, monumentality, and landscape. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London

Pollard has been involved in field projects around the Neolithic monument complexes of Avebury and Stonehenge, including the Longstones Project which sought to understand the sequence and context of monument construction in the later Neolithic of the Avebury region, and which led to the re-discovery of a second megalithic avenue (the Beckhampton Avenue) leading from the Avebury henge and an unusual later Neolithic enclosure. The project also focussed on other key elements of the complex, such as the West Kennet Avenue, Falkner's Circle and the Avebury Cove.

He has also been involved in the Stonehenge Riverside Project since 2004: a field project that he jointly directs with Dr Mike Parker Pearson, Dr Colin Richards, Dr Julian Thomas, Dr Chris Tilley and Dr Kate Welham. The project's aim is to understand the local and regional context of Stonehenge, not as a monument in isolation, but as part of a more extensive 3rd and early 2nd millennium BC ceremonial complex focused on the River Avon. Work at the henge enclosure of Durrington Walls in 2004 explored the area of the south-eastern entrance, and the relationship between the henge and River Avon.
