More comings and goings…. We welcomed Fiona Johnstone in February as a new Finds Liaison Assistant in support of our own Richard Henry. Richard is still with us but is curating our up-coming Terry Pratchett exhibition, together with the Pratchett Estate and Paul Kidby (16 September – 13 January), so he is busy with other things.


Fiona was formerly a Volunteer with us, working with Richard on the Portable Antiquities Scheme.  She moved on to an internship in this field when she was successful in applying for a post based between Winchester, nearby, and Lewes in Sussex. However, she couldn’t stay away, and immediately applied when she saw work was available back here! She will be with us for at least a year.

Fiona was at Edinburgh University, reading Ancient History, graduating in 2015. Her dissertation was to do with a group of deities that appear on the reverse of Roman Severin coinage. Even she says it was ‘nerdy’ but this must make her the world’s greatest expert…!


Meanwhile, it is a sad farewell to Grace Clark who had also been working with Richard but who has now returned to continue her studies with Dr Miles Russell at Bournemouth University. Thank you Grace. We will miss you.
