Beresford) developed a deep interest for archaeology when he discovered the remains of the abandoned village of Bittesby in Leicestershire, England. With John G. Hurst, Beresford went on to excavate the village of Wharram Percy in North Yorkshire, England.
Beresford was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1985.
