Media updates and enquiries

If you would like to receive updates on new material, please provide your details, with a current email address, to the newsroom team.

The newsroom team is also happy to receive enquiries from media who wish to produce their own stories and features on the exciting discoveries made in Jersey in the summer of 2012. All such enquiries are discussed by the Jersey Heritage team, the Island authorities (where this is necessary as the locations are protected areas) and the individuals who made the discoveries. We are all keen to facilitate enquiries that help promote the rich and diverse heritage of Jersey to a wider audience and we look forward to hearing from you.

 

Expert interviews

A number of key people have been involved in the discovery, excavation, conservation and promotion of Jersey’s ‘treasures’. These include archaeologists, conservators, metal detectorists, education staff and external consultants who have advised the on-Island teams.

All of these people are willing to speak to the media and to assist with projects wherever possible. Due to the large number of requests for interviews we would ask in the first instance that you contact the newsroom and give details of who you would like to speak to, or what you would like to speak about, and we can make sure the appropriate person is made available to you as soon as possible
