Past Preservers Expert Presenter Agency; Past Preservers People, is excited to announce that our line-up of presenters has expanded with the addition of Archaeologist & #ArchaeoActivist Katie Paul to our team.
Katie Paul is an anthropologist and archaeologist fighting to combat illicit antiquities trafficking in the Middle East. She has done extensive research on the looting of ancient artifacts in Egypt, but her focus on archaeology started at her roots.Originally from Ohio — a state archaeologically rich in its own right — Katie would operate her own ‘digs’ in her backyard as a kid to search for fossils and other ancient finds. She now resides in Washington, DC (but still has the fossils!).
She serves as the Chief of Staff at the Antiquities Coalition, a Washington, DC-based non-profit dedicated to providing solutions to protect culture under threat in countries facing crisis. Katie is also cofounder of The ArchaeoVenturers Project and co-hosted the ArchaeoVenturers YouTube series dedicated on bringing archaeology and science to a millennial audience. Katie has worked to advocate for preservation of history in the MENA region since she began her career at The George Washington University.
Katie is thrilled to join the Past Preservers team “I’m a big believer in ArchaeoActivism, being more than an archaeologist, and that means bringing messages on the critical threats to our cultural heritage to a wider audience. Past Preservers provides the tools to help me amplify this message.”
Nigel J. Hetherington, Founder & CEO of Past Preservers, says, “Katie is a great addition to our outstanding lineup of presenters, Past Preservers is proud to welcome her to the team. Katie has worked tirelessly to spread the message of ArchaeoActivism and she has employed new tools to bring the world of archaeology and the importance of protecting it to a wider audience, this excites us tremendously and we look forward to working with her.”
Katie is joining our team of presenters that make up Past Preservers People, a boutique, full service talent management agency which represents experts in their fields from around the globe. The company is built around a small but diverse group of individuals that share the passion and drive necessary for success in the highly competitive media world.
