“Heritage is not just about sticks and stones. It’s about things making sense to people, part of the accumulated culture of their communities.” – John Yates
I started writing this blog during my Institute for Archaeologists workplace learning placement as a Trainee Heritage Officer at the Brecon Beacons National Park from October 2012 to September 2013. Due to the blog’s success and popularity during this time I decided to continue writing about my archaeological explorations, some of which will cover work I do in my job and others will investigate my own out-of-work archaeological interests.
On the 6th January 2014 I started a job as the Community Archaeologist for the CALCH project. I am currently based at Dyfed Archaeological Trust and I’ll be blogging about the Trust’s investigations into the lime industry of the Black Mountain. There are a lot of exciting events coming up over the next few months leading to the end of the CALCH project (October) and I will be posting about upcoming projects and volunteer opportunities as well as reports on what work has been done on the mountain thus far (please see my existing CALCH blog posts from previous work).
Please stay tuned and don’t hesitate to contact me (HollyMae Steane Price) with any queries you may have regarding the CALCH project (firstname.lastname@example.org).
