Sophie Jennings, GML Heritage Consultant and Archaeologist, holds a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Archaeology from the University of Sydney, with Honours in Archaeology from the University of Western Australia. She has nine years of experience working in the heritage sector, and has undertaken archaeological projects in both Australia and England.
Prior to joining GML, Sophie worked for several years in London, gaining experience in undertaking archaeological impact assessments for major commercial, industrial and residential developments across the city and southeast England. This experience made her a skilled field archaeologist, as she worked on a range of urban and rural excavations dating from the Bronze Age through to the Tudor period.
Sophie is also skilled in Aboriginal archaeology, having undertaken the planning and management of heritage surveys in Western Australia. In addition to the technical aspects of the role, this involved Aboriginal community liaison and managing a range of stakeholders from both government and private sectors.
Archaeology connects people to place. I love the thrill of discovery, of uncovering an unusual association or quirky aspect of a site that wasn’t known before.
