Join us for this webinar focused on developing a career in archaeology. The webinar will be led by two BU alumni, now pursuing careers in the field.
Luke graduated from BU with a BSc (Hons) in Archaeology in 2017 and is now an Archaeological Technician with CRM Group, Canada. Luke says: "My work involves manual excavation of shovel test pits in an area of a known Paleo site (12,000 years old). I am required to spot relevant cultural material and excavate to high standards. Securing paid work as an archaeologist, and working internationally, has always been a goal for me. A degree in archaeology is rare within Canada, as most universities only offer anthropology. So this, coupled the large amount of varied fieldwork I gained while at BU, have been very helpful."
Lindsay graduated from BU with an MSc in Forensic Archaeology in 2014. Lindsay says: "I have been fortunate enough to publish an article in a magazine that is related to my degree and had a number of associated volunteer experiences as well. It has given me the opportunity to expand my network in the field and meet new people in the area. The network is continuing to grow the longer that I reside here and make the efforts to contact people. The industry that I graduated in is very specific, so being open to exploring other opportunities is very important."
Join us at our next networking event for alumni living and working in the local area, giving you an opportunity to see our latest learning facilities and make connections which could support your future career.
