After a career involving running her own businesses relating to education and also tourism, in the Middle East, Europe and the Caribbean, Patricia became a mature student. Following graduation in 2012, she founded ArchaeoLink, a non-profit organisation under the auspices of the Division of Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. Its purpose is to liaise between archaeologists and the communities in which they dig, to help those communities obtain educational and economic benefits from their archaeology: thus ensuring maximum positive impact from archaeologists’ research. In the first year of operation, projects have taken place in Greece, Crete and Italy.
