Helen Geake

Helen’s interest in archaeology was sparked partly by attending lecturers by Time Team’s Mick. She studied at University College London and University of York, specialising in Anglo-Saxon cemeteries. She has worked at Norwich Castle Museum, the Portable Antiquities Scheme, Cambridge University and the British Museum. Helen first joined Time Team in 1998, appearing periodically as our Anglo Saxon expert, and more regularly from 2006 to 2010. Helen has also appeared in Britain’s Secret Treasures, presented by another Time Team veteran, Bettany Hughes.
