Senior Community Archaeologist – Schools and Young People


I am a Palaeolithic and community archaeologist, with expertise in the Palaeolithic of Britain and northern Europe. I have extensive experience of archaeological excavations in both research and commercial archaeology settings, in Britain and around the world, and spanning from the Palaeolithic to Post-Medieval period.

I have previously worked at the British Museum in both curatorial and research roles, most recently as a post-doctoral researcher on the Leverhulme-funded Mapping Palaeolithic Britain project. From 2017 to 2021 I worked at Queen Mary University of London as a post-doctoral researcher on the Pathways to Ancient Britain project. In this role I led a number of public engagement and collaboration projects with Hackney Museum, the Norfolk Museums Service, and North Norfolk District Council.

Whilst at Queen Mary I also contributed to undergraduate teaching as a teaching assistant and co-developed and ran the 2019 Queen Mary Summer School course: Timewalkers: early humans, stone tools and environmental change. I am currently an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Geography at Queen Mary and a Research Associate with the Pathways to Ancient Britain project.
