Harriet "Hatti" Archer (née Dean; born 2 February 1982) is a British long-distance runner who competes in cross country and steeplechase. She set three British national records in the 3000 metres steeplechase in 2007, most notably at a rain soaked event at Don Valley Stadium in July of that year. She competed at five World Cross Country Championships between 2005 and 2011, with her best result being 15th in Mombasa in 2007. She finished in the top ten at the European Cross Country Championships in 2008 (8th) and 2010 (7th), an event at which she has also won four team medals.
Archer earned selection in the 3000 metres steeplechase for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, but was unable to compete due to a stress fracture to her ankle. In July 2010, she ran in the 3000 metres steeplechase at the European Championships in Barcelona, finishing fourth in the final in a time of 9:30.19, eight seconds quicker than her previous best.
Marta Domínguez, who finished second in the race was disqualified in November 2015 due to doping offences, handed a three-year ban and stripped of all medals and results achieved between August 5, 2009, and July 8, 2013.
Yuliya Zaripova of Russia who won the race in Barcelona, and went on to win world and Olympic titles in 2011 and 2012, was also subsequently handed a doping suspension. Third finisher, Lyubov Kharlamova of Russia, also served a two-year ban after testing positive in 2006.
Archer was upgraded to the bronze medal, with Khavlamova promoted to silver, after second-place finisher Domínguez was disqualified in November 2015.
Archer was further upgraded to the silver medal after Khaylamova was disqualified in August 2017.
Born Harriet Emily Dean in Oxford, England, Archer was educated at the Dragon School and St Helen and St Katharine School in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. She married fellow distance runner Dave Archer in 2012. They have a daughter, born in 2014, and a son, born in 2017.
