I am a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership PhD student working in the Environment and Sustainability Institute on a project called ‘Managing Archaeological Loss in the Face of a Changing Coast’ supervised by Professor Caitlin DeSilvey (University of Exeter), Dr Hannah Fluck (Historic England) and Dr Bryony Onciul (University of Exeter).

The project focuses on heritage assets located around Britain’s South West coastline that face inevitable loss through coastal processes. Though we cannot stop the loss of these assets we can help people understand the effects of this through better communication strategies. Therefore the aim of the project will be looking into the effectiveness of current methods used by national heritage bodies to create useful dialogues regarding inevitable loss of heritage assets to their internal teams and then how effectively this is disseminated to the public using creative media methods such as film.

I have previously worked as a research assistant creating archaeological films for the SCAPE Trust based in the University of St Andrews.
