Jennifer Browning BA MA MCIfA

Project Officer

Jennifer is a Project Officer at ULAS, with over 25 years of archaeological experience, following a BA in Archaeology at Nottingham and Landscape Studies MA at Leicester. 

She has expertise in both fieldwork and post-excavation, having developed a specialism in zooarchaeology since 1998, reporting on animal bone assemblages both from ULAS sites and for external clients. Published reports include Highcross Leicester, Humberstone, and the ritual complex at Hallaton for ULAS and Great Glen for Albion Archaeology.

She has directed significant urban and rural excavations, for example at Bath Lane, Leicester and Waterfield Place, Market Harborough respectively. She enjoys meeting the challenge of more complex archaeology, aiming to elicit as much information as possible within the available resources and adapting methodologies to suit different types of site.

She has also been involved in a variety of outreach including directing, and co-directing, archaeological field schools; helping to train students and promote archaeology to the public, for example the Bradgate Park Field School (2015-19). She regularly works alongside colleagues in the School of Archaeology and Ancient History, as well as members of other organisations, and volunteers.
