Prior to joining GML, Sophie worked for several years in London, gaining experience in undertaking archaelogical 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.
Sophie is also skilled in Aboriginal archaeology, having worked in Western Australia and NSW on survey, planning and excavation projects. Sophie has experience in Aboriginal community liaison and stakeholder communication.
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.
