Venturer of the Week: Mark Spooner

Mark Spooner feature imagesSay hello to Mark Spooner!

Why has Mark joined the Digital Dig Team? It’s a common theme in our Venturers, and a story we never tire of hearing: ‘I’ve always wanted to study archaeology but somehow my life took a different path, and its something I’ve always regretted.  I’ve often thought about going back to university to study but never taken the plunge.  DigVentures seemed like a great way to support a worthy cause and finally dip my toe into the subject and see whether it might really be for me. Looking forward to spending a week trowelling with you all!’
