Bristol archaeologist gets TV big break
AN industrial archaeologist from Bristol University looks set to be the next small screen star to come out of the university's academic staff.
Dr Cassie Newland, will present the new landmark BBC Two series, The Genius of Inventions, which starts next Thursday.
Dr Newland, a teaching fellow in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology joins Michael Moseley and Professor Mark Miodownik as they unlock the nature of invention and explore how inventions changed the lives of ordinary people over the centuries. The series will run for four weeks and will look at speed, power, communication and the visual image.
She follows in the footsteps of other Bristol academics who have become television presenters, including Professor Mark Horton, Professor Mick Aston, Professor Alice Roberts and Professor Bruce Hood.

Dr Newland is an expert on the development of telegraphy during the nineteenth century. She completed her PhD in Bristol's Department of Archaeology in 2006, and now teaches on the MA in Historical and Landscape Archaeology. She has previously appeared on Time Team and Coast but this series is her first real opportunity to present archaeology.
Dr Newland said: "It was a fantastic series to make that really got into the nature of invention."
The Genius of Inventions begins at 9pm on BBC Two on Thursday, January 24.
