His first archaeological ‘lecture’ was at the tender age of five when he gave an impromptu talk to families visiting the gatehouse at Beeston Castle, Cheshire!
In 2007, Marc graduated from the University of Durham with a First Class BA (hons) in Archaeology. Since then he has worked in Archaeological Units in North Wales, Yorkshire and the North East of England.
