Hilary Orange

Hilary Orange originally came to UCL in 2005 to study for a Masters in Public Archaeology and in 2012 completed her PhD at UCL. Her thesis, entitled “Cornish Mining Heritage: Public Perceptions of Industrial Archaeology in a Post-Industrial Society” examined public perceptions of Cornish mining landscapes with a focus on changing public values and policy towards cultural heritage during the post-war period.

From 2012 to 2013 she managed a post-doctoral project, which examined the challenges commercial archaeologists face incorporating public engagement within projects (funded by UCL Advances / hosted by UCL Centre for Applied Archaeology). It conducted national online survey of activities and attitudes within the industry.

She is currently editing a cross-disciplinary collection of papers on the theme of ‘Reanimating Industrial Spaces’ (based on the conference proceedings of TAG 2009 and EAA 2010) to be published through the Institute of Archaeology/Left Coast Press. She is also employed as a Senior Archaeologist at CAA. As a Research Associate she is working on a collaborative project between UCL Institute of Archaeology and Red Earth Arts. The APERTURE project seeks to scope out the potential of cross-disciplinary collaborations and the development of public-facing cultural events linked to a number of current landscape based research projects at UCL.
