Commercial Archaeology

Prior to starting my PhD I worked for 4 years in commercial archaeology for companies including GGAT, MOLA and Oxford Archaeology East. At OAE I worked both in the field and as part of the environmental team as an environmental processing specialist. I also contributed the company'€™s outreach, supervising volunteers on community excavations and developing workshops for schools.

Community Engagement Projects

Oxford Archaeology East - I was heavily involved in the company's outreach programme and recently worked as part of a team to deliver The Romans of Fane Road community archaeology project. This involved teaching over 100 volunteers (both children and adults) archaeological excavation techniques, along with delivering short lectures on many different aspects of archaeology to the volunteers and visiting members of the public over the course of a month.

Guerilla Archaeology -“ I have been a member of the GA collective since 2010. We aim to engage with the public in creative ways at music festivals and local events, combining archaeological evidence with art, crafts, talks and activities.

Future Animals project - I assisted in the delivery of workshops at National Museum of Wales with three local schools as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Ambassador.

Changing Tides: The archaeological context of sea level change in Prehistoric South Wales

My project will work towards an archaeological perspective of sea level change in South Wales by focussing on small geographic areas of known prehistoric inhabitancy to build an archaeological narrative over time.

This will be achieved through:

The reconstruction of the prehistoric environment

- By identifying and mapping intertidal peats to create a comprehensive record that can be used for future research.
- By obtaining palaeoenvironmental sequences for individual sites along the south Welsh coastline through palynological analysis.
- By radiocarbon dating changes in the palaeoenvironmental record related to sea level change.
- The investigation of prehistoric responses to marine transgression.
- By exploring spatial relationships between archaeology and reconstructed prehistoric coastlines and landscapes.
- By comparing construction dates of archaeological sites with local sea level dates.
- By assessing the evidence of available resources before, during and after marine transgression periods via the environmental and archaeological records.
- By analysing land use patterns over time within the study area.

Start date: 1 October 2014
