ALLOWING THE MATERIALS TO TELL THE BIGGEST STORIES – AND WHERE IA SOCIETIES FIT IN
‘IA societies are a deep reservoir of local knowledge and thoughtful understanding’ – says ANGUS BUCHANAN LECTURER, DR CASSIE NEWLAND.
Dr Newland gave the Second Annual Angus Buchanan Lecture at the Museum of Bath at Work on May 20.
Dr Newland read Economics at Exeter before becoming “obsessed” with Archaeology and returning to university in her late 20s. She taught Archaeology, Heritage and Public History at Bristol University, King’s College London and Bath Spa before taking on the Directorship of the Cultural Heritage Institute at Royal Agricultural University (RAU) Swindon, as well as being Senior Lecturer in Cultural Heritage.
Cassie is a regular presenter and contributor to broadcast media. She was awarded the British Archaeology Award for the Best Public Presentation of Archaeology with the extremely popular Time Team television series, and the BA (British Association for the Advancement of Science) Festival of Science Award for the Presentation of Heritage for the now famous The Van project.
