After finishing my PhD on the Irish Bronze Age in 2000, I moved my focus forward in time and began studying zoos as ritual landscapes. Working for English Heritage for ten years gave me a solid, if critical, understanding of heritage management.  My first foray into the future was for a project collaborating with artists in Broadmead, Bristol. I am particularly interested in the way children are used in future discourse. I live in Portsmouth and am based in the Institute of Archaeology at UCL.



Afterlives Salon


This salon to accompany the current Octagon exhibition Cabinets of Consequence will explore how heritage and other related forms of conservation practices (including nuclear waste management) make futures.  How do we use material culture to stitch futures from pasts? What do we conserve? What do we get rid of? What do we allow to change? This Salon will be staged as a series of conversations across various themes currently being explored within the Heritage Futures research programme,Event held at Haldane Room, Wilkins Building , Gower Street WC1
