VANDA MORTON MA PhD (Historical Archaeology) is based in Oxford and offers an authoritative voice on the history and archaeology of brass. Her research has involved metallurgical research, fieldwork and international networking. She draws on interpersonal skills developed early in her career in psychiatric healthcare, on illustrating skills acquired during a later career in graphic design, culminating in an academic career in archaeology. Her international research has taken her to muddy fields, mountains, forests, and rushing streams, and into homes, castles, laboratories and museums. These adventures have exploited her enthusiasm for foreign languages, love of walking, and joy at meeting the many and various people who have introduced her to different cultures, sites and archaeological treasures.
