I'm a trained archaeologist (BA and MA, preparing a PhD), classics teacher, and staunch feminist who spent two years at the British Museum as a gallery assistant. I still run a variety of tours in the museum, as well as occasionally giving gallery talks. I love to spend my time wandering around the galleries and reading about all the less-famous objects people don't always notice. I also run Beyond Rosetta, an Instagram devoted to the hidden gems of the collection.
