Research areas and topics

Research Focus:

medieval historical urban

Interest in Synthesis

I am keen to see much closer working between the different ‘silos’ within archaeology and cultural heritage, and between our sector and others who are exploring similar themes in human history. I am passionate about using the past in the present to create social and environmental benefits for the future. I believe that individual and collective well-being is enhanced by the widest possible engagement with heritage.

Collaboration Interests

Borders and borderland landscapes, urbanisation and urban experience, industrialisation and its relationship to imperialism and colonialism, museums and museology, de-colonisation of heritage, public engagement and community heritage, open access to data.
