Rafael Bravo Gomez BA MA
Rafael graduated in History in Madrid in 2015 and later did his MA in Archaeology in Leiden University (The Netherlands), specialising in Near Eastern Archaeology. As a student, he participated in several excavations in Europe (Spain, Ireland and Cyprus), where he gained his first hands-on experience in the field. This helped him to approach archaeology in different ways, using different techniques and working in international environments.
Rafael started working in commercial archaeology in October 2017, when he first moved to the UK, for the Museum of London Archaeology, and participated in the large-scale A14 Project, in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire. In this project, he excavated many different types of features, ranging from some roman burials to a fish trap in an artificial pond. After that, he volunteered for Cambridge University in an excavation in the island of Keros (Greece).
He joined AOC in October 2018, and since then, he has worked in various urban and rural sites in London and across the UK (from Portsmouth to Yorkshire) ranging from Roman to the Post-Medieval period.
