Speaker: Karen Adams A day in the life of an Archaeologist




I am an archaeologist and historian. I grew up in York and became very interested in the history of that city. I love looking at old maps and seeing how the area has changed, and which historical gems still survive.
I started working in archaeology on an excavation in York in the mid 1980’s, and by 2000 I had moved into the East Riding area.
Archaeological work has allowed me to excavate sites of many different periods, from Iron Age to modern, discovering items left behind by the people who lived and worked in those areas generations ago.
This work and personal research of York’s history, allows me to continue creating new talks which will be added here.
