15 Questions With An Archeologist

Hello and welcome to 15 Questions with an Archeologist! 

This podcast is an interview show that seeks to ask as many archeologists as possible the same 15 questions. These questions are designed to cover the areas in which archeologists are most often queried. They are also designed to provoke thought and commentary on our profession.

Emily Wapshott


In this episode, we are joined by Emily Wapshott; Commercial Archeologist at Southwest Archaeology and Co-Founder of Archaeologists Engage in the UK.

Emily began her tenure as an archeologist at a young age. Beginning with volunteer work when she was eight-years-old. Later on, she found her way to the University of Exeter to pursue her education. It was there where she earned a double honors undergraduate degree in History and Archeology, as well as a postgraduate degree in Experimental Archeology. 

Throughout her career, Emily has had the opportunity to conduct fieldwork in some amazing places. With sites in and around the UK, as well as abroad in countries like Greece. Now, as a Commercial Archeologist, much of her work is done primarily throughout Cornwall, Devon, and Somerset in the UK. Along with her commercial work, she is also a trustee at the Great Torrington Heritage Museum in Devon.

Listen to her answers to our 15 questions, and get an interesting perspective from someone who does work within archeology that has not been discussed very much on the podcast.
