Biography

Karen is an archaeologist and historian who grew up in York and became very interested in the history of that city. She started working in archaeology on an excavation in York in the mid 1980’s, and her archaeological work has allowed her to excavate sites of many different periods, from Iron Age to modern, discovering items left behind by the people who lived and worked in those areas generations ago.
