"Hello everyone! I’m Louise and I have just started a 12 month Community Archaeology Training Placement, hosted by Scottish Canals in partnership with the Scottish Waterways Trust and Falkirk Community Trust. I am really looking forward to the next 12 months and all of the exciting times and experiences ahead!
"I have always loved archaeology and could be frequently found digging holes in the garden when I was wee! I joined the Young Archaeologists' Club as soon as the branch started where I live, adding to my love of archaeology and confirming for me that I wanted to do archaeology at university. I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2008 with a BSc (Hons) in Archaeology. After graduating I went on to complete a postgraduate diploma in Sustainable Development at the University of Stirling. I then worked as an Energy Surveyor on a Climate Challenge Funded project in Stirling helping the community to lower their carbon footprint. I was then lucky enough to spend some time volunteering as a classroom assistant at a local primary school to gain experience and skills in a new setting. That brings us to now, where I am one of a small number of people who are developing their careers on a Council for British Archaeology training placement."
