Wessex Archaeology West is pleased to welcome Ruth Humphreys, our latest recruit, joining us as a Senior Heritage Consultant based at our Bristol Office. Ruth’s experience covers a broad range of sites and archaeological environments of different periods. Since 2007 she has worked for several archaeology units across the Midlands, whilst also contributing to a number of international projects in Egypt, Sudan and Greece. Since 2013 Ruth has predominantly worked on heritage assessments, including the River Thames Scheme which involved collating information on over 3000 heritage assets across several unitary authorities.
Ruth remains passionate about African archaeology, and enjoys expanding her understanding of the wide variety of approaches taken to heritage conservation across the globe. She recently presented a paper on early-stage archaeological intervention within the UK Planning process at a conference in Slovenia.
