Welcoming out New President

We are delighted to announce that Natasha Ferguson was confirmed as the new President of Glasgow Archaeological Society at our AGM on Thursday 18th April. Natasha has served as vice-president for the past few years and becomes our youngest – and only sixth – woman president. 

Natasha is a Senior Archaeologist at Jacobs UK, based in Glasgow. As well as providing heritage consultation with Jacobs, she is also a STEM Ambassador and is currently involved in projects delivering community outreach. 

She is a graduate of the University of Glasgow, with an undergraduate degree and a PhD from the Centre for Battlefield Archaeology. Her doctoral research looked into the role of hobbyist metal detecting in battlefield archaeology.  Natasha has enjoyed a varied career working across the heritage sector, including the National Museum of Scotland, National Trust for Scotland, and GUARD Archaeology. 

“It is an honour to be elected as President of GAS and join a small, but illustrious, group of women in the role. I am passionate about engaging young people with archaeology, and as President, my mission will be to encourage greater participation with young audiences across Glasgow and its surrounds”.

The outgoing President, Dr Kenny Brophy, said: “It has been a real privilege to serve as President of GAS for the past 3 years. I am delighted to hand over the reins to Tasha who will bring her youthful vigour and years of experience of a range of different parts of the archaeology sector to the Society, who will be in very safe hands!”

We are also delighted to announce that Dr Stephen Harrison was approved at the AGM to become our new Vice-President.
