She re-joined early in 2016 and was promoted to Project Officer.

Siân is Archaeology Wales’ Health and Safety Manager, having completed the IOSH Level 3 Managing Safely course. She is responsible for all aspects of health and safety within the company and ensuring staff are fully trained to carry out their work safely.

As part of their Berkeley Castle Project, Siân was part of a team that won the 2016 Current Archaeology Award for Research Excavation.

Siân is particularly interested in the Iron Age and Romano-British period. Her Ph.D. studies looked at how material culture was used during these periods by communities in the south-west of England.
