My name is Louise Thomas and I am a third year Archaeology and Ancient History student. I first heard of the SHARE With Schools project through my involvement with the CAER Heritage project last summer, a community engagement project based in the Cardiff suburbs of Caerau and Ely. I decided that I would like to […]


Rachel Pugh My name is Rachel Pugh. I’m a first year History student at Cardiff University. After my degree I’m hoping to progress into a career in education, so when I heard about the ‘SHARE with Schools’ project I thought it would be a great opportunity to gain some experience and meet new people. I […]


Five years ago, a team of postgraduate students were assembled by Dr David Wyatt to develop what would become a flagship impact project for Cardiff University in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion. I came into the project in its second year, so I missed the first year with all its struggles and excitement […]


Thomas Snook I am a first year undergraduate reading Archaeology. I assisted with the Archaeological Science workshop presented to years 7, 8 and 9 at Fitzalan School. The pupils were given different graves and from completing several activities gained enough information to build up a picture of the life of the individual buried in their […]

I did workshops for […]


Jon Cook My name is Jon Cook, a third year Religious Studies student. When I first heard about the program [SHARE with Schools] I knew it would help my future in ways of experience. Even though it was a little daunting at first because I was not doing a degree in archaeology or history but […]


Kelsey Clarke During my first year at Cardiff I wanted to sign up to volunteer with SHARE with Schools, but I convinced myself that I did not have enough knowledge to go out and deliver the workshops. What if these children knew more than me? What if they asked me a question and I couldn’t […]


Beth Cox I went to my first ever SHARE With Schools Project event early in my second year and I was terrified: terrified I wouldn’t know what to say, terrified the kids wouldn’t listen; terrified I knew nothing about the Romans. But I loved it! I came home, signed up for ever other one that […]
