Marta joined the Trust in 2015 to assist in the supervision of the excavations as well as the delivery of the rich research program that the Trust pursues. Her day to day tasks range from teaching field excavation, recording and surveying techniques to volunteers to processing the data collected through excavation and working on publications.

Her specialist subjects are textile implements on the frontier and their relationship to female identity, as well as volunteer participation to archaeology on Hadrian’s Wall. On the latter subject she is pursuing a part-time PhD at Newcastle University.

When she is not digging, studying or writing she can be found reading a fiction book or cooking a delicious Italian meal.
