Key Research Interests and Expertise

Lorna's main areas of research interest are in the fields of digital archaeology and heritage, digital ethics, and social media research methods. Her current archaeological research explores the ways in which digital technologies support wider access to, and create, discuss and repurpose expert archaeological knowledge in non-expert online platforms and communities. Lorna is currently working on a project centred on Stonehenge. This examines public perceptions of the site and it's importance to non-experts, using data drawn from online communities.

Lorna worked in the archaeological sector in a number of roles including field archaeologist and community archaeologist prior to her academic career. She has worked for a number of organisations including the Thames Discovery Programme, Wessex Archaeology, MOLA, L-P Archaeology and the Council for British Archaeology. Building on her background in community archaeology, she established the Waveney Valley Community Archaeology Group in Norfolk in 2013.
