Venturer profile: Ruth Wheeler, Jane McCormick and Sally Bissoondialsingh

“We are all really looking forward to joining the team at Flag Fen and getting involved with some exciting archaeology. We met several years ago whilst studying for a certificate in Prehistoric Archaeology at Birkbeck, London and have been going on digs and road trips to various prehistoric sites together ever since. The Flag Fen project will be a chance to get our trowels out again and make a contribution to an exciting and important project. Can’t wait to get our hands dirty!”

We can’t wait either! Thanks all for the support – really looking forward to meeting you on site!
