Most fun I’ve had in a field: Managing the outreach component of the Ham Hill Excavations (Somerset)
Favourite archaeological landscape: South Dorset Ridgeway
Hardest project to date: Pulling off a successful Roman Street Party in several inches of mud and snow
Biggest achievement: Completing my PhD on time
Most bling artefact discovered: Trumpington Cross www.cam.ac.uk/trumpingtoncross
Plans for the future: To keep introducing new audiences to archaeology
What I think community archaeology is: participation in all types of archaeological research by all types of people.
