Having always had an interest in heritage and preservation, Amanda holds two Master’s in archaeological conservation from University College London, and one in archaeology from Boston University. Alongside her studies, she has spent the past nine years as a practising archaeologist and conservator. Archaeological projects have included the Giza Plateau Mapping Project, excavations in Rapa Nui and Fort Clark, ND, and contracting for the US Department of the Army. Equally active in conservation projects, Amanda has worked in the USA, Turkey, Egypt and the UK as well as being the project manager of the conservation of Roman mosaics at Chedworth for the past year. In the upcoming year Amanda will be working at the Museum of London full time in their archaeological conservation laboratory. firstname.lastname@example.org
Chedworth RevealedIn July 2010 we revealed and protected mosaics at Chedworth Roman Villa. This was part of a major project to improve visitor access and conservation of the historic fabric. We had a wonderful time and met visitors from all over the world. It was fabulous to share our work and talk about it on-site.
- The excavation and conservation work was captured by this blog as it happened. The 2010 blog is no longer maintained but will still be available as an archive and on-line resource.
- The new cover buildings will be complete in 2012. We’ll be back then to finish the excavations and reveal the full 30m of corridor mosaic!
