This week’s episode was made in conjunction with the Council for British Archaeology. We go on an adventure to their annual Archaeology Day in London and speak to some brilliant people, from the mastermind behind the Mithraeum, Sophie Jackson, the Director of the CBA, Mike Heyworth, and the winners of the Marsh Archaeology Awards. You will get some insight into how the award winners got to where they are and what advice they would give to others, as well as hear the first interview with Mike since announcing he is stepping down as Director of the CBA. We hope you enjoy it!
