Jessica McGinn, Archaeologist

Jessica is a recent merit graduate of the Human Osteology and Funerary Archaeology Masters of Science programme at the University of Sheffield, who has worked in both public-facing and curatorial roles within the heritage and customer service sectors. She fell in love with archaeology along with thousands of other people watching Harrison Ford use his fists and wit to find hidden treasures around the world.

She says “Real archaeology is much less like the movies, but a lot more rewarding. I have had the opportunity to work in Greece, Egypt, and Great Britain and the privilege to explore everything from Minoan palaces to medieval charnel chapels. I especially love working with the public and Past Preservers has provided me a way to combine my passion for history and film as a presenter.”
