Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust


Katherine Longley BA


I joined the Trust in October 2018 as an Assistant Community Archaeologist. I hold a BA in Archaeology (Cardiff University) and have a varied background in the heritage sector, involving work in museums and heritage charities such as the National Trust.

I develop and deliver projects in outreach and engagement with Penelope, and run CPAT’s social media. I assist on the Unloved Heritage project, a Wales wide HLF youth led scheme to get some of the more recent, unsung heritage of Wales the love it needs: facilitating skills, self-confidence, creative arts, and joy in the past among young people from diverse backgrounds. I’m working with a group based at John Beddoes school, Presteigne, and we’re developing a travelling “pop up time vortex museum”, a VR sensory experience that allows the visitor to be in the changing landscape of rural Wales before and after the coming of the combustion engine.

I am passionate about equality and diversity in archaeology and the heritage sector. I am currently working on a project to achieve Autism Friendly status at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery.

Personal interests include fashion, beauty, food, hiking and photography.
