Zoe Edwards is a recent BU archaeology graduate. Shortly after leaving BU Zoe won a prestigious placement with English Heritage, and has now been offered a permanent position working as a heritage consultant with AB Heritage.
Here Zoe gives us an insight into the exciting research work she has been doing.
Shortly after completing my Archaeological and Forensic Sciences degree at Bournemouth University, I was offered a position as a Heritage Environment placement, based at English Heritage. I worked primarily with three of the non-intrusive archaeology teams – the Aerial investigation and Mapping team, the Assessment Team (landscape survey), and the Geophysics team. I have worked on a great range of projects, and contributed to English Heritage research reports, blogs, and websites, while also being introduced to the methods of aerial reconnaissance from light aircraft, various methods of field survey, and attending a wide range of courses and conferences both across the country and abroad. I would certainly recommend the Institute for Archaeologists (IFA) placements to anyone interested in learning a broad range of skills to apply in a career in archaeology.
