I lecture in Archaeology at the University of Cambridge, UK; I specialise in WWII archaeology - a new field - and I do my fieldwork in the British Channel Islands. I adore travelling and am getting married in 2013 - my fiance, Jon, and I are planning to drive from Calgary to Vancouver on our honeymoon. We live in Cambridge with Misha, our cat. Otherwise, I love writing and my fiance loves photography and we're both real foodies. I'm too much of a workaholic and I'm afraid that academia is my life, but so is Jon now!
My favourite travel destinations in Europe are mostly in Italy: I love Venice, Florence and Rome most of all and have been many times. Jerusalem is another favourite (but troubled) city, as is Cape Town.
I've only just joined Airbnb so look forward to discovering more about it!
