Cambridge Heritage Research Centre



After completing a BA in Archaeology at the University of Chester in 2019, I went on to work with the Centre for Applied Archaeology (CFAA) at the University of Salford as a Commercial Archaeologist. Being based in England’s Northwest, most of the projects I excavated and recorded were industrial remains dating from the 18th to 20th centuries. Of these industrial sites, I worked on and subsequently authored the archaeological excavation report on the first colliery site to be fully archaeologically investigated in Merseyside. 


My research centres around the study of industrial and post-industrial heritage(s) in Britain. My MPhil dissertation project explored how ‘everyday industrial heritage’ can provide insights into the core challenges facing industrial heritage today. Building upon the research I conducted in the MPhil, my PhD research aims to examine the network of relationships that regional post-industrial identities have with constructs of a broader British national identity.
