ExpertiseCoastal & Marine
I joined Wessex Archaeology’s Edinburgh office, working as a terrestrial archaeologist supporting the Scottish projects of the Coastal & Marine Team in Edinburgh in 2015. I have spent two years working on mitigation for marine and inter-tidal projects as well as working with the offshore renewables and marine aggregates industries around UK waters, identifying, surveying and protecting the underwater archaeological resource. I have also worked on several historic vessel Conservation Management Plans, including one for the Museum Fleet of the Scottish Fisheries Museum and the WWI cruiser HMS Caroline for the National Museum of the Royal Navy.
As well as marine work, I am involved in terrestrial projects around Scotland, including with Armed Services veterans alongside Breaking Ground Heritage and on the geoarchaeological survey of Dunadd. I am also currently being trained as a commercial drone pilot by Wessex Archaeology.
I am motivated by the desire to contribute high quality, accurate archaeological results and reports, which are not only stand-alone reports for the client, but also tie in to the archaeological record as a whole. I also am involved in promoting and organising the appropriate training and development of archaeologists, not just through Wessex Archaeology but also more widely through the Diggers’ Forum, Prospect and CIfA.
In my spare time I sail and repair small dinghies, as well as enjoying hill walking and whisky.
