2015 Undergraduate Fieldwork Bursaries

Every year the department provides a number of fieldwork bursaries for our undergraduate students.

The bursaries enable students to gain experience in the heritage sector through participation in archaeological fieldwork.

We are very pleased to announce that this year seven of our students have received funding.

Eileen Burn will be involved in research of World War I and WWII camps in South Yorkshire.

James Danter and Jasmine Porter will join excavations at Rufford Abbey and Thornton Abbey, Lincolnshire.

Kathryn Goulding and Marcus Losty will be traveling further afield to the Vagnari Roman Imperial Estate project, Italy.

As will Tom Maltas who will be heading to Crete to work at Knossos Gypsades.

Finally, back in the UK, Del Pickup will take part in the Poulton Research Project, Cheshire.
