Hi! I’m Jen, the Learning and Engagement Officer at the Crags. I’m in charge of the learning service that brings our Ice Age heritage to you, the visitors – whether that’s world-renowned archaeologists or children doing their Stone Age topic at school!
I’m a trained anthropologist (a professional “people-watcher”) with a fascination for the human story during the last Ice Age. My blog is going to be discussing up-to-the minute research on human origins and prehistoric archaeology from Britain and beyond. If you want to know more, you can reach me at Jennifer.Horseman@creswell-crags.org.uk.
Hi, I’m Kat. I’m the Marketing and Participation officer here at the Crags, meaning I’m in charge of recruiting volunteers, organising events and marketing, advertising and promoting the wonderful site to new and returning visitors!
My blogs will mostly be based around the wonderful work our volunteers are doing and the super events we’re putting on throughout the year. If you have any ideas for events or you wish to put your skills to great use as a volunteer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Hello all, I’m Lucy. I’m the Collections & Exhibitions Officer here at Creswell Crags which means I’m in charge of caring for all our unique and precious archaeology, from the caves themselves to the 70,000 ancient objects in our collection.
No two days are the same in this role; one day I can be designing or installing a new exhibition, the next talking to some researchers about what they can learn from our collection, and the next carefully monitoring our artefacts for signs of damage. And all with the help of a wonderful team of volunteers! Let me know if you have any collections-based questions and I’ll do my best to help!
Hi I’m Jack. I have worked at Creswell Crags since 2013 but, having grown up in the local area, have been visiting since before I could walk! I am an ornithologist, meaning much of my work focuses on birds and you can often find me putting up nest boxes, filling up the bird feeders or monitoring nests.
I’m also a bird ringer, meaning I am licensed with the British Trust for Ornithology to safely tag wild birds with metal rings to learn more about them. No interest in birds comes without a wider appreciation for nature and I also work with Jim to help promote all the wildlife that can be found here. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi I’m Jim. I’m a trained naturalist with a background in Conservation. I really enjoy my work because the site is so varied and there is always something different to see. I hope you will enjoy my blog and perhaps even contribute to it. I will highlight what has been seen around the site during the last month.
I would like this blog to become yours as well with your input and your photos. I would welcome your input (reports of sightings and photos) via email (email@example.com). Alternatively, please feel free to take details of your sightings to the main reception desk during open hours, leaving your contact details.
