Wessex Archaeology is a leading provider of heritage services to a range of sectors and clients across the UK.
I was working on commercial heritage consultancy projects, undertaking desk based research, heritage planning guidance and conservation policy; assessing impacts to the setting and significance of heritage assets.
After being in Tunisia's famoust archaeological site for a trainee in 2009 I had the great honor of being able to manage a discrete area of work within restoration of new Thermas discovered in 2014.
I spent a year as one of the English guides at Empúries archaeological site located in the mediterranean north coast of Spain. Empúries is the only archaeological site in the Iberian Peninsula where remains a place where the Greek -Emporion colony enclave- with the remains of a Roman city founded in the early 1st century BC on the structures of a Roman military camp installed during the previous century.
The Traineeship I assisted consisted in field work helping the District of tunis Archaeological staff on the restoration and maintenance work at the Archaeological Site of Carthage , protected by Unesco Heritage Program for Historic Monuments since 1985
Carthage was founded in the 9th century B.C. on the Gulf of Tunis. From the 6th century onwards, it developed into a great trading empire covering much of the Mediterranean and was home to a brilliant civilization. In the course of the long Punic wars, Carthage occupied territories belonging to Rome, which finally destroyed its rival in 146 B.C. A second "Roman" Carthage was then established on the ruins of the first.
“Samantha was one of the best field archaeologists we have had at the ruins of Chartage. She was very methodical, had a good planning approach and excellent research and analysis skills. Another skill that impressed me was her passion for history. I would love to have her on our team again.”
“Sam's knowledge of ancient civilizations is impressive, and she has a unique approach to excavations planning and excellent research skills”
