My passion for the past began as a Jurassic Park obsessed young child. At home, my mother still has one of those ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ questionaries, where my answer was…a Palaeontologist! Throughout life, I’ve explored my many interests through different careers like IT and Fitness, but this passion for the past has never left me. I decided to translate this passion into purpose when I began my Archaeology degree. For me, working with cultural heritage is a great privilege and one where I can hopefully make a difference for current and future generations.
Although a modern reproduction, this obsidian arrowhead demonstrates the durable, versatile and aesthetic qualities of Lithic technology. Artefacts like this hold continued cultural significance, have been pivotal to our shared human evolution and are endlessly fascinating to me.
