Meet the Archaeologist

What does an archaeologist do? Is it like the programmes you've seen on TV? As part of the Festival of British Archaeology we are going to be giving you the opportunity to find out more. Archaeologist Rob Hedge will be talking about the life and role of an archaeologist, from day-to-day digging to investigating some amazing sites as a digger for Channel 4's Time Team.



He will explore the behind-the-scenes work that helps to tell the story, from how we can tell so much from tiny pieces of pottery, to what happens to the sites and the finds once the digging is completed. In addition to his work for Time Team, he will also discuss his current work for Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, as a CBA Bursary holder working on community archaeology projects, especially with young people.

The event takes place on Wednesday 24th July at 7pm in the Studio in The Hive. It is free of charge but places must be reserved in advance. You can do this by e-mailing explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk, or alternatively by ringing 01905 766352.
