Caitlin studied archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, UCL, and, on graduating, went into journalism. After years of writing, travelling, and playing, she was delighted to join CWA, where she can combine all three activities with her enduring enthusiasm for archaeology.
Andrew Selkirk founded Current Archaeology in 1967 with his wife Wendy, and is now Editor-in-Chief. He has always been interested in archaeology; he did his first dig at school at the age of 13, subsequently went up to Oxford, where he read classics and became President of the Oxford University Archaeological Society. Believing that you cannot understand the past unless you first understand the present, he then became a Chartered Accountant, but while serving articles, he edited the student magazine Contra. This gave him a taste for editing magazine, so having qualified, he decided to abandon accountancy and launch a new archaeology magazine, called Current Archaeology. This was a success from the start, and has covered virtually all aspects of British archaeology.

She has excavated in the USA and the UK and after a time of travelling, digging, internships and blogging she joined the CWA team where she now works on editorial and digital content as Editorial Assistant.
