Hi, my name is Charlie and I am the new Community Archaeologist for the National Trust (South Wales). In this role I will be setting up lots of diverse (and fun) archaeology related projects for members of different community groups to get involved in.
I want to use this blog to discuss these projects and let you know about any projects coming up in the future that you may want to get involved in (so its worth checking back regularly to see whats going on!!!).
In the past I have been lucky enough to work all over Europe on lots of fascinating sites… From surveying WWI defences on the Western Frontline to searching for the Great Escape tunnels in the infamous Stalagluft III and some Holocaust related archaeology in the Ukraine. I have also worked all over the UK but this is my first time in Wales! I am looking forward to the year ahead and engaging directly with the public.
Check back regularly to read about whats happened and what will be going on…. There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved and I wouldn’t want you to miss out!
