The Scheme is pleased to announce that Duncan Slarke has just started work in the Staffordshire and West Midlands area. He says about himself:
Duncan graduated in Archaeology and Religious Studies from St David’s University College in Lampeter. Before working as an FLO, Duncan was with the Conservation and Collection Care Department at Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, where he worked in preventive conservation, ensuring that objects were kept in suitable environmental conditions. Duncan is keen to share his enthusiasm for the Portable Antiquities Scheme with new audiences so that more people may enjoy and better understand the past.
Duncan has replaced Caroline Johnson, who has left to take up a teacher training course. We wish her all the best for the future and hope she stays in touch. We will be announcing more staff changes shortly as there are a few movements and new starters.
