During my time at the University of the West of England, I did a lot of public speaking and led tours related to my PhD research on the post-war development of central Bristol and the public art that went alongside it. Over the decade since then, this has turned into an active interest in public archaeology and I regularly give talks on archaeology and art, lead archaeology workshops and run the Public Archaeology Twitter Conference with Dr Lorna Richardson.
I have run public engagement workshops in both public, academic and commercial contexts. Read more about them and see examples of previous workshops on the Workshops page here.
Alongside running workshops, speaking to people is just about the best bit of the job. Visit the Talks page for a full list of past events. As an art-archaeologist, I love getting the chance to give an archaeological perspective on gallery and museum exhibitions.
