Neil Stratford is medievalist. He was Keeper of Medieval and Later Antiquities of the British Museum between 1975 and 1998. Neil Stratford participated as a member of the committee to develop the Corpus of Romanesque sculpture in Britain and Ireland and online inventory of Romanesque art, begun in 1988. As the Leverhulme Senior Research Fellow at the British Academy in 1991, he worked on the international project, Corpus de la sculpture de Cluny, which he edited in 2011 with assistance of the Centre d’Etudes Clunisiennes. Stratford remained at the British Museum until 1998 when he retired as Keeper Emeritus. In 1999 he was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, in 2002-2003 visiting professeur d'histoire de l'art du Moyen-Âge at the École des Chartes (Université Paris I, Sorbonne).

Stratford's work on Vézelay and Saint-Lazare d'Autun resulted in a more precise chronology of those sculptural monuments. The lecture Burgundy During the Second Half of the 12th Century can be followed up by a short research colloquy with participation of the audience.
