Stewart Ainsworth FSA, MCIfA
A lifelong career spent investigating the landscape. I started as a mapping surveyor and archaeological investigator with the Ordnance Survey, then moved on to be a Senior Investigator and archaeologist with the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England and English Heritage. Along the way I entered the world of television and became a broadcaster on Channel Four’s Time Team as the resident Landscape Investigator. I am currently Visiting Professor of Landscape Archaeology at the University of Chester, Honorary President of Altogether Archaeology (a volunteer archaeology group), and Archaeological Advisor to the Epiacum Heritage Charitable Trust.
Penny Lock BA, Dip Cl S.
I have spent the last 15 years working in Museum Education and Historical Interpretation, appearing in programmes such as Michael Portillo’s Great British Railway Journeys. I am currently co-leader of a successful branch of YAC, was a researcher for the Time Team DigVillage book and worked with both Stewart and Mark to produce the archaeological report for the investigations in Dunster, Somerset. When not working I love to travel and explore the history of other countries with some of my favourites being Egypt, Mexico, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia.
Mark Haworth B.Eng (Hons)
Over 40 years working in the telecommunications industry working on both hardware & software design, manufacturing and test engineering development, project management and most recently logistics design. Since 2011, I’ve also been actively involved in contributing to archaeological projects as a volunteer. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being involved with them, particularly those where I was able to learn something about a place by means other than just digging it.
