Liverpool, England, United Kingdom
I am an historian trained as archaeologist, blogger/writer and activist. I dabble in web design and photography.
I am interested in women's history and archaeology andst societies and how our view of the past affects our present realities. I have a special interest in the study of women in ancient societies and completed a First Class dissertation on "Women in the Religious Sphere in Sumer; The Role of the En Priestess". I am interested in how modern interpretations of identity such as gender, race and class affect our interpretations of past societies and how our view of the past affects our present realities. I have recently completed a history project on the Pitt Street area of Liverpool which focused on the issues such as Empire, Immigration, Race, Gender and Class intersected within both wider society of the time and the local area.
I have been active within Merseyside Women's Movement for over 5 years and have helped organise many events for International Women's Day as well as overseeing and organising the publicity, web and social media presence.
