New Team Member for Built Heritage
My name is James Wright and I have recently joined Wessex Archaeology’s Sheffield Office as a Built Heritage Technician. Following my return to education as a ‘mature student’, I graduated from the University of York with a BA in Archaeology last year. Since then, I have been working as a Planning Intern for Calderdale Council, assisting with the preparation of their Local Plan (focusing on the Historic Environment Policies, which means I have some experience of built heritage from a slightly different perspective, which I hope will prove useful!)
It was my passion for buildings archaeology and the historic environment that was the driving force for me returning to education − my aim was to secure a position in the field that I felt so enthusiastic about, and so I feel very excited to begin my career with Wessex Archaeology.
Since starting, I have begun undertaking my training, which will continue over the coming days, weeks and months − next is my photographic and survey training, and then a trip to the archives!
