Fixed term until 30 April 2015
We are seeking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced Archaeological Supervisor to assist in the delivery of an exciting major new community archaeology project.
TWAM has received funding from the HLF and other organisations for the project ‘Hadrian’s Wall and Its Legacy on Tyneside’. It will involve many communities from urban Tyneside to Tynedale in archaeological fieldwork, research and interpretation on the line of the Wall. The main aims of the project are to raise awareness of this rich heritage, which forms part of the UNESCO Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site, and to promote active, long-term engagement by communities in all aspects of its archaeology.
You will be responsible for supervising a series of projects within the overall programme, including excavation, survey, finds work and the organisation of events and displays. Based at Arbeia Roman Fort at South Shields, you will be part of a team which will provide technical support and guidance to volunteers and community groups. You will work with them to enhance their skills and knowledge, so that they will be able to work independently, as individuals or groups, on interpreting and presenting the heritage of Hadrian’s Wall.
Some knowledge of Hadrian’s Wall is desirable. You must be able to show that you have worked successfully with community groups and volunteers. Ability to write archive reports, using relevant IT skills, must be demonstrated. Some draughting ability is also essential.
