“I am delighted to be taking up this role with the CBA and looking forward to strengthening our role in championing archaeology in the United Kingdom.
Our landscapes and cities contain the most fantastic stories locked away in the fabric of their buildings and the undulations in their fields. Our role is to help the public ask questions about their places, to drive curiosity and inquisitiveness and use archaeology to help create meaningful places and experiences for all.“
