Biography

Peter is originally from Belfast. He moved to Scotland when he was eighteen to undertake a joint degree in English Literature & Language from the University of Glasgow. After graduation, Peter worked for several years in the heritage sector in the Commercial Enterprises and Estates department at National Trust for Scotland's HQ. As his role was to coordinate products and ideas between the international market and the various departments and properties of the Trust, he received extensive experience in heritage issues during this time.

In the last year of his employment at the Trust, Peter completed an MScR in Celtic & Scottish Studies at the University of Edinburgh, with a thesis critiquing received theories on Saint Columba. Seeking to combine his professional and academic expertise, he left the organisation to take up a phd in heritage studies and archaeopolitics at the University of Aberdeen. Peter is especially interested  in the corporate culture of heritage organisations, archaeological theory, and how narratives of history and culture can affect public life.
