I’m an undergrad student at the University of Edinburgh, studying history and archaeology.
I’m really excited to be back on the team at the Ness this year.
Last season was my first time excavating at this amazing site and it’s such a privilege to be able to return this year.
This time around I’m hoping to continue working in Trench T and also to improve my knowledge of the site as a whole.
I first came to Orkney in 2010 on a family holiday and was immediately fascinated by the incredible archaeology of the islands (as well as the beautiful scenery).
My love of Scottish archaeology grew from that point onwards!
I’m hoping to meet some older, wiser and more experienced archaeologists and do a lot of learning in the weeks I spend at the Ness of Brodgar.
Orkney was the place that initiated my interest in archaeology and it is so exciting to be back on the team excavating on the Ness of Brodgar itself!
