Bradford University Student completes successful placement at CPAT

Emma Turner from Bradford University has left CPAT after 6 months to begin the next challenge in her placement year, studying bones from archaeological excavations in York at the York Archaeological Trust. Unfortunately for Emma due to the soil conditions we seldom find bones during excavations in our region of Wales, so there were none for her to work with at CPAT. However, between May and December 2011, as well as completing other smaller tasks, she worked on adding several thousand records of finds from the Portable Antiquities Scheme and Iron Age and Roman Coins from Wales databases to the Historic Environment Record; a valuable task which may help us identify and discover more about archaeological sites in the region, including several previously unknown sites. We wish Emma all the best for the future and look forward to welcoming her successor from Bradford later in the year.
