For me, landscape research is about justice and empowerment. I am a Director of Inherit – the Institute for Heritage & Sustainable Human Development – which is part of cultural heritage NGO, the York Archaeological Trust. At Inherit, we combine purposeful research with action for change, collaborating with others on advocacy and practical community development.
A particular focus for us is land and landscape heritage, rural development and land reform. We also work on cultural heritage in relation to a range of other development and environmental concerns. Over the last few years, we have been working with communities, NGOs, universities and public sector partners in the UK, Greece, Spain, Italy and France, in Lebanon, Jordan, the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Iraq, and in China.
I have worked in cultural heritage for over 20 years; before joining the York Archaeological Trust, I worked as a university lecturer, in the private sector and for government
