RAU Environment students have been investigating an archaeological site on a farm close to the RAU.
Very little information is currently available, but students are beginning to form a picture of what is likely to have been a Roman villa. Second year student Gabby Crossey, who was leading first year students in this activity as part of her assessment said ‘It’s great to apply my knowledge of this site in a way that also enables me to test my supervision skills, a key criteria that employers are looking for.’
Programme Manager, Dr Ian Grange, said ‘Students are given fantastic opportunities not only to pursue what are quite unique studies linked to the real world, but also to test the sorts of leadership and management skills which are critical for employability.’
