Rob Lennox is the policy advisor to the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) and in this interview we discuss the challenges for archaeology as a profession and the ways in which conferences such as CIFA held in Brighton this year can bring people inside and outside the industry together to work together.
A Bronze Age settlement in England, Must Farm is an extremely well-preserved settlement that has taught archaeologists a lot about that time and place.
Today we talk to Sir Barry Cunliffe, a British archaeologist and Oxford University professor. Sir Barry has worked all over the UK and Europe, written many books, and influenced British archaeology. This is an awesome chat about his career and directions in British archaeology.

Hello everyone, welcome to the first Archaeology and Ale podcast of 2016.
For those of you new to our podcast, Archaeology and Ale is a free monthly talk held upstairs at the Red Deer pub on Pitt Street in Sheffield. It’s arranged by the Archaeology in the City outreach programme from the University of Sheffield Archaeology Department. The Red Deer is a very popular pub so there is always going to be some background noise in our recordings.
In this episode, our guest speaker Glyn Davies shares his experiences digging at Sheffield Castle and what he hopes could be discovered in future excavations.
Find out more about the Friends of Sheffield Castle at their website at friendsofsheffieldcastle.org.uk
