Thesis title: Creating a Framework for Community Engagement in Scottish Commercial Archaeology
My PhD is researching community engagement in commercial archaeology, in Scotland.
I have worked in the Scottish commercial sector as an archaeologist (PCIfA), and enjoyed engaging with the public at a variety of sites. My interest in communicating history, heritage and archaeology has developed throughout my studies, and in a variety of work placements, such as Visitor Assistant roles.
I am passionate about archaeological outreach and education. I have gained experience working within the education system, as a Pupil Support Assistant, and am a leader of the newly launched Young Archaeologist's Club in Edinburgh.
