Dr. Carenza Lewis
University of Cambridge archaeologist Dr Carenza Lewis is a familiar face due to numerous television appearances, including The Great British Story – A People’s History, where she takes Michael Wood along to an excavation of the Norman castle mound at Mount Bures in Essex and oversees residents of Long Melford in Suffolk digging in their village.
“ Archaeology is just the best subject in the world, it never loses its ability to intrigue, surprise, puzzle and enthrall me. Carenza Lewis
In 1999, Dr Lewis was a field archaeologist with the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England (now part of English Heritage), and was seconded to the University of Birmingham to research medieval settlements from 1992-4. She then began teaching archaeology at the University of Cambridge and five years later took on new responsibilities for archaeological outreach, working with schools and local communities. She will join our guest panel discussion at The Great British Story event at Ickworth House near Bury St Edmunds along with Michael Wood and Professor Kevin Schürer.
