Laura Joyner

Laura Joyner My name is Laura and I hold the Community Archaeology Training Placement with Surrey County Archaeological Unit I have always been passionate about heritage and am a keen historian, but did not take up the trowel until 2009 when I participated in the Community Excavation at Woking Palace. This dig inspired me to start volunteering for both the Surrey County Archaeological Unit and Surrey’s Historic Environment Record (HER), and to spend as much time as possible in trenches. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to pursue my love of archaeology in such an active and community-based role.
