I am a Built Heritage Consultant at Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA), where I have worked since 2011, specialising in assisting clients achieve planning permission for built heritage schemes across the UK, combining detailed assessment of historic structures and fabric with analysis of buildings’ place in the contemporary landscape.
I have been working within the built heritage sector for 15 years, working on around 300 sites around the country, and have led a number of major projects including the built heritage work on the London 2012 Olympics, the St Petersfield development in Ashton-under-Lyne, and Bristol Brewery/Finzel’s Reach in Bristol.
I have edited professionally for 7 years and have experience working with archaeology and history book manuscripts, academic and peer-reviewed journals and corporate reports. I was Assistant Editor of the journal Post-Medieval Archaeology from 2010 – 2017 and have done most of my recent work for Pen and Sword Archaeology.
Since 2011, I have run an occasional series of workshops teaching contemporary archaeological fieldwork methods to non-archaeologists. I have convened workshops in a range of contexts including academic research projects, public art programmes and as part of public engagement with planning and development.
