Research

Research Overview

Experiential learning is at the heart of my research interests and ranges from exploring how schools have embedded archaeological exploration into the curriculum to the role of everyday family activities in developing positive heritage practices. I have expertise in anthropological approaches to how people make sense of the past in their experiences of being outdoors. I have led AHRC funded  Community History projects around Scotland and worked in interdisciplinary projects with colleagues in Anthropology and Archaeology linked to community heritage.
