This blog is for heritage interpreters and anyone working in the heritage or museums sector – as well as anyone who simply has an interest in interpretation and heritage. Thanks for stopping by!
I post once or twice a month about books and articles that I’ve read, sites I’ve visited, experiences from my own professional practice, and insights from my research. My hope is that my posts offer you a critical perspective and encourage discussion. Do let me know your thoughts by posting a comment. I promise I will respond!

I am Director of Museums for the City of Oldenburg in Germany. Before taking on this role, I was a senior consultant in a heritage consultancy in the UK and I worked in management for several years at museums and heritage sites for local government in England and Wales, and for the National Trust for Scotland. I’ve also worked in heritage interpretation in the United States. I hold a PhD in Archaeology/Heritage Studies from University College London. Since September 2015, I am the Vice President for Policy of ICOMOS’ International Scientific Committee on Interpretation and Presentation of Cultural Heritage Sites. Since May 2016, I am also the Research Co-ordinator for Interpret Europe.
