York Archaeological Trust, the independent educational Charity founded in 1972 to respond to threats posed to the City’s heritage, has welcomed three newly-elected members to the Board of Trustees. The new Trustees, Susan Palmer OBE, Professor Ellen Roberts and Peter Wheatcroft, join Chair, Professor Anthony Robards OBE, and the six current Trustees, in overseeing the strategic operations of the Trust along with Chief Executive, David Jennings.
Chair, Professor Robards, says, “On behalf of my fellow Trustees and David, I am delighted to welcome Susan, Ellen and Peter to York Archaeological Trust and look forward to working with them over the coming years as we embark on our new five-year strategy.
“Since its inception York Archaeological Trust has become one of the UK’s biggest archaeological organisations, growing from its head office in York, to extend to three further offices in Glasgow, Sheffield and Nottingham. The experience, support and ideas contributed by the new trustees will play a crucial role in achieving the Charity’s exciting aims of public dissemination during the period of the strategic plan.”
