Dave Weldrake has worked in archaeology for over 40 years. Before going freelance he worked for the West Yorkshire Archaeology Advisory Service and is a former chair of the Yorkshire Section of the Council for British Archaeology. As a consequence he has a wide experience of all types of site ranging from Iron Age to modern. However, his main area of interest is bringing archaeology and history alive to non-specialists. In this role he regularly gives presentations   to schoolchildren and works with them on small-scale excavations. He lectures to students studying for a teaching degree and is a frequent speaker at both heritage and education conferences. He also provides talks and walks for local heritage groups.  On a good day he will have worked with all ages of people from 4 to 90.

He has also written numerous articles for magazines, journals and online publications. Many of these can be accessed by clicking here.

When not working on archaeological projects, Dave rrelaxes by pursuing his interest in holy wells and other aspects

of local folklore.
