I work archaeology, study archaeology, volunteer archaeology. Each day my archaeology is everything from reminders of the First World War to traces of Stone Age life. Here is a little collage of some of the things I was thinking about on 29 July 2016.
Getting started in archaeology: volunteering and studying as a part-time mature student
I’m going to explain how and why I came into archaeology (which will discuss volunteering and studying as a part-time mature student), and why I went into the field of early medieval archaeology. I hope this will show the positive effects of history and archaeology in schools, the role of museums in stimulating interest, and the significance of public access to archaeology. It will also hopefully provide some insight into the value of education, and the challenges of studying archaeology as a mature student.
