My primary role is leading the ‘Putting Flesh on the Bones Project’, a collaboration between the University of Bradford’s Special Collections and Department of Archaeological Sciences.
About the Project
Funded by the Wellcome Trust, the project involves unlocking the archive collection of renowned palaeopathologist Calvin Wells. Working with a team that includes a conservator and osteopath, my main responsibilities involve cataloguing, digitising, preserving, and promoting Wells’ rich and unique archive. You can find out more about the collection and the project’s progress on the Putting Flesh on the Bones Project webpage.
Since gaining my archive qualification from the University of Glasgow in 2013, I have worked for a range of arts, heritage and academic organisations. This includes the Mercers’ Company, London Metropolitan Archives and the University of Arts London. I have been fortunate to work with archive collections as diverse as the Estate Paper of Sir Richard Whittington to the counter-cultural comic books of Robert Crumb. With a passion for historical records and objects, my professional focus is opening up hidden archive collections for research and discovery.
Outside of work I enjoy exploring the rich cultural and natural heritage of the North-West.
