Sophie Jennings 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 13 years’ experience working in the heritage sector, and has undertaken archaeological projects in New South Wales, Western Australia, Victoria, Tasmania and in England.
Sophie specialises in both historical and Aboriginal archaeology, and is highly skilled in the preparation of Aboriginal and historical archaeological assessments, research designs, and heritage advice. She has also been site supervisor and excavation director on a number of historical and Aboriginal archaeological excavations.
Sophie meets the Heritage Council of NSW’s excavation director criteria for locally significant archaeology.
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 gave her skills in field archaeology on a range of urban and rural excavations dating from the Bronze Age through to the Tudor period.
‘Archaeology connects people to place. I love uncovering an unusual association or quirky aspect of a site that wasn’t known before and sharing that understanding of our past with others.’
