Neil Bayliss BA PCIfA
I have been involved with the Trust since 2012, initially volunteering, then on a self-employed basis before joining the team 2018. Prior to joining the archaeology profession I worked in the print industry for 26 years before leaving in 2013 to begin my re-entry into the education system, firstly at North Shropshire College and then The University of Chester.
I predominantly work in the curatorial section of the Trust, assisting with development control, heritage management and data entry into the Heritage Environment Record. However, I still keep my hand in with some research archaeology, more recently at Beacon Ring and Llys Edwin and enjoy getting my hands dirty on site.
Outside of archaeology I enjoy spending time with my family, walking and occasionally playing cricket. As an aside I am a football referee, officiating at tier 3 in the Welsh system and I also assess the development of young referees and assistant referees at the, sometimes difficult, start of their careers.
