Hi Ed and everyone else,

I work in cultural resource management, managing the historic environment 
record (HER) for Greater London.  Prior to this I've worked in other HERs 
in England, and for the Council for British Research in the Levant in 
Jordan and Syria.

What is your interest in Arches?

I'm working on a project with the GCI and another English HER to develop a 
new heritage management system using Arches that we and other HERs could 
use.  In London we are keen to extend use of the HER beyond just the GLHER 
team, but out to our colleagues in the London boroughs, to heritage 
professionals, and to the general public, whether for interest or as 
volunteers.  I've used relational databases and ArcGIS, but I think open 
source systems have a lot of potential, and they are something I've not 
used before.  

Where am I working?

Usually in Holborn, in the Historic England London Office, but to day at 
home in Sittingbourne, Kent

What can I see out of the window?

I can see what's left of my vegetable patch after the slugs have munched 
their way through it.  Heritage wise, If I had x-ray vision and could see 
through my dining room wall I would be looking at the Grade II listed 
former Borden School, and before that agricultural college, and in the 
evenings, when the wind is in the right direction I can hear the bells of 
St Peter & St Paul's Borden (

Sorry for the short hello, but the school pick-up run beckons!
