Department of Classics and Archaeology, School of Humanities,
the University of Nottingham
Natasha is currently employed as a Research Fellow on the Caistor Immersive Experience project, developing an Augmented Reality app for the Roman town and is also a Reviews co-editor for the Britannia archaeology journal.
She has taken an active role in fieldwalking, excavation and finds processing at the civitas capital of Venta Icenorum (Caistor St Edmund) with the Caistor Roman Project (CRP) over the past twelve years.
Since 2010, I have been investigating the 1929-35 excavations of Donald Atkinson at Caistor, in partnership with Norfolk Museums Service (NMS) and CRP. Oral history interviews are another project which I have been carrying out over the past several years with key figures in the archaeology of Norfolk. She extended this study to explore the personal stories, opinions and behaviour of metal-detectorists, who play an important role in recovering many of the objects.
