Kate also has specialist experience in geophysics, and the use of AutoCAD to produce illustrations.
A project officer with NAA, Kate has previously worked at Penny Rigg copper mill and has just finished community survey at Low Bonsor mill at Coniston. She is also a CAD and geophysics whizz.
Clare Henderson: Field Team
Clare will work with Kate and has 15 years experience as both a field archaeologist and heritage curator, having held the post of Senior Archaeologist at Durham County Council for the last 7 years. She has a BA (Hons) in British Archaeology and an MLitt in Industrial Archaeology from Newcastle University. As a field archaeologist Clare has been involved in a wide range of projects across the North of England including landscape survey and building recording. Since a kid she has been a keen mine explorer, and together with her dad has undertaken numerous underground explorations (always appropriately kitted out and as part of an authorised group). Now living in Carlisle, she is also a very keen walker in the local area.
