New Online MA in English Building History at the University of York

Introducing the new Masters in English Building History – an online collaborative programme delivered by the Centre for Lifelong Learning and the Department of Archaeology.

Over the course of study, we broadly cover England’s architectural history from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day. A range of significant buildings and sites from vernacular dwellings to the Country House are considered, and thus the difference between vernacular and polite styles of building. As well as engaging with key themes and debates, students will be trained in the practical skills of analysis. You will learn how to recognise archetypal styles, and how these were shaped by technological, social, economic, geographic and cultural forces; different methods of investigation; and the relevance of such buildings today, drawing on examples from across the country.

The programme starts in late September/early October, concurrent with each new academic year – places are limited to ensure a constructive atmosphere for discussions.

This is a three-year, part-time, MA programme delivered online in a fully-supported learning environment, with blended learning support for the final year Independent Study Module. Students can exit with a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma if their circumstances change

For more details, see the course website: https://www.york.ac.uk/lifelonglearning/english-building-history/

Please note: Successful applicants may be entitled to a government-backed loan of up to £10,000 to support their studies. For more information: https://www.york.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/fees-funding/taught/uk-eu-fund...

Community Archaeologist
Fulham Place Trust
£26,000 - £30,000 pa (depending on experience)
Three year post, full time, 40 hours per week

Fulham Palace, situated in extensive grounds by the River Thames, was the country residence of the Bishops of London for many centuries. The historic importance of the site, which has seen thousands of years of human occupation, ultimately derives from its location at an ancient crossing point on the River Thames. The site’s archaeological significance is reflected in its designation as a Scheduled Monument in 1976. Following the first significant archaeological dig in 1972-3 across a section of the moat, there have been numerous surveys and investigations, including those undertaken since 2003 in association with successive restoration works. The Palace is now managed by Fulham Palace Trust, which is inspired by a vision to restore the Grade I and II listed buildings and Grade II* listed gardens to their original beauty and to provide outstanding facilities for the local community and visitors from farther afield.

The Trust is embarking on an HLF-funded major project ‘Discovering the Bishop of London’s Palace at Fulham’. The project will focus on bringing the iconic Tudor Quadrangle and key historic rooms, such as the Great Hall, back to life by conserving the building and dressing the rooms to show how the Bishops of London would have lived and worked here across the centuries. We will also enhance the botanical gardens, including re-establishing some of the exotic species that were first introduced to Europe by the botanist and bishop Henry Compton in the late 17th and early 18th century. As part of the project, there will be a series of community archaeology projects over three years.

As our Community Archaeologist you will be a professional archaeologist with a successful track record of overseeing archaeological projects from inception, through design, fieldwork, post-excavation assessment and analysis to publication. You will have an energetic and proactive approach to your work and have great organisational skills, highly developed communication skills and extensive experience of working with volunteers and in developing and running public engagement projects. You will be an accredited member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists or have equivalent experience.

Role summary: the post-holder will work alongside other staff of Fulham Palace to manage, deliver and evaluate a programme of practical archaeology over a three-year period. This will include: planning and running learning and practical archaeology events, supervising volunteers and external archaeological professionals, training volunteers and members of the public, designing and managing a community archaeology dig, geophysical investigations, tree-pit archaeological supervision, a parchmark weekend to map below-ground structures, historic building recording, management of collections and archaeological archives, managing and adding to all photographic records of the site and overseeing the development of specialist publications.

Interested candidates should go to to http://www.fulhampalace.org/about/vacancies/ to view the full Job Description. Please download and complete the Application and Equal Opportunities forms, and return them to the Palace’s Business Support Officer, Alice Wolvey, by post or email (admin [at] fulhampalace.org) by 9 am on Wednesday 8 March 2017
Should you have any questions regarding the post please contact us via email at admin [at] fulhampalace.org or telephone 020 7610 7169.

Interviews are expected to take place: 15th and 16th March 2017

Expected start date: early to mid May 2017

Please note that due to the volume of applications we are unable to offer feedback to those not shortlisted for interview.

Thank you for your interest in Fulham Palace.

Graduate Trainees
Oxford Archaeology
£16,070-£17,032


Location: Opportunities in Cambridge, Lancaster and Oxford

Oxford Archaeology is one of the largest independent archaeological practices in Europe. Our size and reputation ensures that we work on the most exciting and varied range of projects, and can offer real opportunities for long term employment and career development.

At the 2016 CIfA Conference our Graduate Trainee programme was Highly Commended in the Archaeology Training Forum Awards.

We are looking for enthusiastic graduate archaeologists who are keen to develop their technical skills to join our team at OA. Although it can be advantageous to be based within reach of one of our three regional offices (in Cambridge, Lancaster and Oxford), we have opportunities on projects throughout the country and are therefore interested in applications from people anywhere in England and Wales.

OA East
We have several projects in the vicinity of both Cambridge and Norwich for which staff are needed over coming months. This includes work on later prehistoric landscapes, Romano-British settlement and industry, rural Saxon remains and urban medieval sites. We will also be excavating more late-prehistoric settlement on the Essex-Herts border and are expecting to need staff for work in south Suffolk.

OA North
We are currently undertaking a large-scale excavation of a late Iron Age/Romano-British site near Newark, as well as on-going multi-period excavations in East Yorkshire. We also have a strong programme for excavations we expect to start in the near future in other areas of Yorkshire and Merseyside and, as a result, are looking to recruit several additional field staff for upcoming predominantly away-based fieldwork.

OA South
We are currently undertaking a large number of projects both in the Oxfordshire area and further afield. Forthcoming larger projects include a number of Late Iron Age - Roman excavations in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, a late prehistoric site in Worcestershire, a Roman villa in Somerset and multi-phase excavations in Kent.

We operate a policy of single rooms for all away-based staff.

Position requirements:
• A degree in archaeology, or equivalent academic knowledge and practical ability
• A full clean driving licence is desirable
• A current CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card is also highly desirable, but training and funding may be provided for those without a card

What we offer:
• A documented training programme
• Mentoring and assessment by experienced OA field staff
• A structured route to membership of CIfA at PCIfA level, subject to satisfactory completion of the training programme

For further details of the Training Programme and Career Path please visit our website https://oxfordarchaeology.com/community-training/training/2016-06-15-12-...

Successful candidates will initially be offered a 12 week contract (37.5 hours per week) with possible extension (subject to availability of work) to allow completion of the Training Programme.

Employee benefits:
• Salary range £16,070 - £17,032 (*pay award pending)
• 32 days holiday (including statutory holidays and concessionary days at Christmas)
• Company pension scheme
• Training including placements, and opportunities for career progression
• 50% of CIfA subscription fees
• Free transport from regional offices to sites
• High quality personal protective equipment (inc. Gore-tex waterproofs, fleece etc)
• Subsistence payment (£15 per night) and free accommodation (B and B / self-catering) provided for away-based projects. No sharing - single rooms only
• Childcare vouchers
• Cycle to work scheme

Expressions of interest from self-employed archaeologists wishing to be considered for fieldwork contracts in the midlands
Archaeology Warwickshire

Archaeology Warwickshire are seeking expressions of interest from self-employed archaeologists wishing to be considered for fieldwork contracts in the midlands.

Archaeology Warwickshire is a dynamic provider of a wide range of commercial heritage services. Our reputation for proficient archaeological solutions and efficient, professional delivery has resulted in a high demand for our services.

We are looking for skilled, motivated, and mobile archaeologists with considerable experience in a wide range of British archaeology to undertake fieldwork both as part of a team and independently. We are particularly keen to receive expressions from archaeologists with a proven track record in undertaking and reporting on watching briefs, and/or supervising evaluations and/or directing excavations with report production to publication standard. We are also keen to expand our network of experienced historic building recorders and IHBC qualified built heritage consultants.

Archaeology Warwickshire is a CIfA Registered Organisation and we expect to pay over and above the salaried equivalent CIfA minima and BAJR approved rates (including the necessary uplift for sickness and holidays), and in return we expect to get professionalism, integrity and commitment.

Applicants should provide a minimum of two contactable referees; prove their self-employed status (or commitment to become so); provide evidence of their insurance and hold valid CSCS cards. Membership of CIfA is highly desirable.
