Volunteering in the HER by Christian Bamford

I started my placement as a volunteer in the HER department in September of 2013. I volunteered because I had been out of work for over a year, and needed something up to date for my CV. The staff members of the HER dept, Leonora and Charina guided me through the computer software, which looked complex at the beginning. The colour coded instructions that Leonora typed up for me at the beginning of my placement, proved to be invaluable in learning how best to type up report descriptions.

My placement was originally supposed to run up until the end of October, but I voluntarily extended my placement though November, December and to the end of January. As someone who knew next to nothing about archaeology, I would still recommend becoming a volunteer.
