Having moved from Nottingham to join the lovely team at Wessex West, just seven months previously, last week I found myself once more a resident or Nottinghamshire and commuting into Sheffield for my first day as a member of Wessex North.
Prior to joining Wessex in April 2017, I worked for a number of archaeological field units across the Midlands as well as undertaking research at the University of Leicester in collaboration with the British Museum. I am passionate about ensuring that adequate consultation within the planning process ensures the protection of our heritage resource, both within the UK and abroad. I have long standing research interests relating to the Nile valley, and continue to work in the region, currently collaborating with Dr Kathryn Howley at Cambridge University on Egypt Exploration Society funded excavations at Sanam temple, near Karima, in northern Sudan.
Here at Wessex North, I will be continuing my role as a Senior Heritage Consultant, whilst also taking on responsibility for implementing future community and outreach projects from this office. I’m looking forward to using my knowledge of the Midlands and Yorkshire, working within our Heritage team, to provide high quality consultancy to our clients across the region.
