A talk by Nathalie Cohen, National Trust Archaeologist for Kent, Sussex and London, introduced by Dr Matt Pope.

After training on sites in Sussex, Wiltshire and London, Nathalie has worked on a number of different archaeological projects including the Monuments at Risk Survey in the East Midlands, (English Heritage / Bournemouth University), the Grimes London Archive Project and the Thames Archaeological Survey (both at the Museum of London), and overseas at sites in Israel, the Czech Republic and Romania.

Nathalie worked at Museum of London Archaeology Service (now MOLA) for over 15 years; as the Archivist for the unit, as a field archaeologist on excavations, and as a specialist in community engagement, inter-tidal zone archaeology and built heritage, on sites across Greater London, Kent, Buckinghamshire, Somerset, Devon and Surrey. She led the Thames Discovery Programme (community archaeology on London’s foreshore) for ten years and completed an MA in Maritime Archaeology at University College London in 2007.  Nathalie was also the Cathedral Archaeologist at Southwark Cathedral for eight years.

Nathalie now works for the National Trust, as the Archaeologist for properties in London, Kent, East and West Sussex, and is the Cathedral Archaeologist for Canterbury Cathedral.
