Student work experience

By 01/06/2022September 21st, 2022News

Sam from Eltham College has just completed his work experience at our London office. PCA were recommended to him by Orpington and District Archaeological Society (ODAS) of which he is a member.

He was a pleasure to work with and this is what he has said of his time with us:

It has given me a good insight into working for an archaeological company. I was involved in assisting with processing finds (washing pottery and bones as well as boxing different samples in order of context numbers) and sifting through environmental samples (finding and identifying bits of bones, flint, shell, pottery and many other materials) from archaeological sites. I enjoyed working with such friendly people who made me feel most welcome.

In the future, I am considering studying archaeology, geology, palaeontology or physical geography at university. I chose PCA because your company has a very good reputation in the industry and I wanted to gain expert experience from well-regarded professionals. 

Here are some photos I took during my work experience:
