Wessex Archaeology is pleased to welcome Patrick Daniel to the Sheffield Team, who joins us as a Project Officer. Patrick’s first brush with archaeology came in 1987, working as a schoolboy volunteer on the late Iron Age trading post site at Redcliff, East Yorkshire. He has maintained a keen enthusiasm for archaeology ever since, through higher and post-graduate education, and working on innumerable excavations, both in the UK and abroad.
Much early field experience was gained as a volunteer, and then as a circuit digger, before becoming established as a Project Officer at Network Archaeology Ltd (Lincoln). His role there involved overseeing excavation work, typically on linear development schemes, consequent post-excavation assessment and analysis work, and monograph production.
Between 2001 and 2004 Patrick spent his summers working as a supervisor on the Anglo-American Project in Pompeii training archaeologists on a research excavation. We all look forward to working with Patrick and hope he finds Romano-British Doncaster a similarly enlightening experience.
