Venturer profile: Rachel Norman

“Hello all. I am an A level Archaeology student in my first year, and the first unit we studied was on religion and ritual…Flag Fen was one of our case studies and I was fascinated by the site. So, when I saw the article on the BBC website, I couldn’t pass on the fantastic opportunity, or fail to contribute to the cause. I also hope to go to university to study archaeology and make it my profession, so this dig will help me gain some great experience.”


Fantastic – we can’t wait to meet you, Rachel!
