Recently Chris Swales has joined Wessex Archaeology’s Edinburgh office from their Sheffield office. Chris has moved to Scotland along with his wife who has taken up a position lecturing in the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee. Chris is looking forward to the challenge of expanding the range of terrestrial projects in Scotland and Northern England as well as getting to meet new faces in the Scottish heritage sector. This means many more exciting terrestrial projects will be added to our portfolio ‘beyond the wall’! 

The Edinburgh team have made Chris feel very welcome and he is expecting a bright future for terrestrial services in the north as well as learning a great deal more about Coastal & Marine Archaeology from his new colleagues.
