What is the connection? They are all favourites of Sophie Hawke, our new Finds Liaison Assistant. Welcome Sophie.

Sophie went on her first dig at the age of eleven (a long time ago she says) and never looked back. From Bradford on Avon, she was one of Mick Aston’s original Certificate in Archaeology students and has since completed a Masters in Landscape Archaeology while bringing up a family. She has come to us via Historic England and a dig at the Roman villa site at Low Ham in Somerset as well as post excavation work at Fort Cumberland in Hampshire.

Sophie is involved with writing up a report on a Roman villa under a playing field at a Bradford on Avon school, researching the manuscripts of Rev John Skinner, Rector of Camerton, Somerset, and is interested in votive objects.

We hope we might hear more from Sophie…. She is with us until May.
