2016 Undergraduate Fieldwork Bursaries

Congratulations to this year’s recipients!

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

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

We are very pleased to announce that this year seven of our students have received funding through the UG Fieldwork Bursary scheme.

Justin Ayres will be participating in an excavation in Pembrokeshire, excavating a chambered tomb close to one of the blue stone quarries used in the construction of Stonehenge.

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

Beth Watson and Nick Groat will join the Sheffield team at the Sinop Kale Excavations on the Turkish coast of the Black Sea.

Ben Radford will also be traveling further afield to the Department’s Vagnari Roman Imperial Estate project, Italy.

Tracy Platts will also be going to Italy, to work on the Forum Sempronii project, excavating a Roman settlement on the Via Flaminia.

Finally, David Inglis will be heading to Crete to work as part of the Sheffield geoarchaeology team at the Knossos Gypsades project.
