I am about to begin my second year at Cardiff University studying MSc Conservation Practice. In my first year, I have worked on an ancient whistle from The Egypt Centre in Swansea, and archaeological iron excavated from Ferrycarrig, Wexford by the Irish Archaeology Field School. Between first and second year, I have completed a placement at Cardiff University, working on Roman coins and repackaging archaeological glass, in addition to experience with air abrasion. I have also recently completed a course with the Irish Archaeology Field School in Wexford, working on a live archaeological dig.
My background is in the creative arts, and I graduated from Cambridge University with my undergraduate degree in History of Art in 2017, before transferring to conservation for my Master’s last year. I am interested in the conservation of archaeological metal, ancient and ethnographic objects, and also have an interest in Medieval and early modern history.
