TV’S newest star archaeologist was back in her hometown hosting a session for students at Barnsley College.

Dr Joann Fletcher, a former college student who entranced viewers earlier this year with her BBC2 series on the everyday lives of Ancient Egyptians, teamed up with forensic scientist Dr Steve Buckley to discuss their work.

They also viewed artwork produced by the students during a recent project on Egypt at the college’s Wigfield Farm site.

Dr Fletcher, above second from left, said: “It was wonderful to go back to the college to speak to the students and learn about their recent study of Ancient Egypt.”
