Jason volunteered with our Finds team for four months in 2015. He was then taken on as a Trainee Archaeologist for a further four months before moving back to the Finds team, where he was employed as a Post-Excavation Processor for just under a year.

Jason eventually moved into our Consultancy team where he has been working since Summer 2016 as an Assistant Heritage Consultant. Jason’s background lies in the military, but archaeologically he recently graduated with a degree in Heritage Management, Environmental Conservation, and Countryside Management from the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester.

Whilst currently employed full time, Jason still volunteers on digs with Breaking Ground Heritage.  This is a Community Interest Company designed by ex-forces personnel and senior archaeologists to facilitate recovery for injured servicemen/women, and to provide a springboard for those who may be interested in the heritage sector as a potential new career pathway.

Jason says “I thoroughly enjoy my work here at Cotswold Archaeology. Starting as a volunteer was an enormous opportunity and gateway into archaeology, which lead to further opportunities and progression across the various departments within the company”.

In his spare time, Jason spends time with his family, travelling and enjoying nature as well as visiting site of historical interest.
