Robert Key MP appointed a Trustee and Board Member

Salisbury MP Robert Key has been appointed a Trustee and Board Member of Wessex Archaeology, based at Old Sarum.

Wessex Archaeology is Britain’s leading consultancy, working on excavation projects where there is a statutory obligation on developers of property or roads to undertake archaeological surveys, and many other heritage projects.

Robert said," I am thrilled to have joined the Wessex Archaeology team. In my childhood I collected arrowheads, old token coins and anything else my mother let me hoard. My tenth birthday treat was a picnic on top of an Iron Age barrow on Cranborne Chase. I spent hours in the old Salisbury Museum with the great curator, Hugh Shortt. Later, as Heritage Minister and then as Roads’ Minister, it was a delight to work with archaeologists. Now I will be able to put something back."

Sue Davies, Chief Executive of the charity, said “We are delighted that Robert has agreed to join our Board. He is immensely supportive of our archaeological and outreach activities. We look forward to his contributions to our organisation’s development.”

NB: The post is unpaid
