Studying ancient history at the University of Warwick, Rebecca developed an interest in classical history including Latin and Greek language study and Hieroglyphs translation, leading to a Master’s degree in Egyptology from the University of Cambridge. As an archaeologist, Rebecca has given back to her community in Cambridge through work teaching local young people about archaeology and heritage at the Higher Education Field Academy. After her conservation work on the mosaics here at Chedworth is complete, Rebecca is excavating in Egypt for the remainder of the year, in both the Sudan and the Nile Delta region. With a passion for teaching, travelling, journalism and photography, she has lived and worked in much of the Middle East, India, Nepal and the Far East as well as Turkey and parts of Europe. email@example.com
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 The 2010 blog is no longer maintained but will still be available as an archive and on-line resource.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!
