Frances is digging with us for the first time this year and has always had an interest in archaeology

“I’ve always been interested in ruins, historical places and mysterious field bumps but the opportunity to do anything about it has always eluded me, mostly due to time constraints and other commitments. I managed to miss many episodes of Time Team and am now catching up with the repeats. My discovery of this dig came through facebook and the Time Team ‘like’ page.
I’m 59 years old and work as a self employed livestock contractor. I’m very practical and would be able to turn my hand to anything you put in front of me.”

Fantastic, thanks Frances, we can’t wait to get out on site either.
