Dr Penelope Crook Discovery Early Career Researcher, Archaeology

My research interests include 19th-Century material culture, assemblage analysis, consumer studies, urban archaeology and digital data management. I have pioneered the examination of quality in historical archaeological assemblage analysis as part of my doctoral research (completed in 2008) and conducted price and linguistic analysis of data from 19th-Century store catalogues. In 2014 I commenced a DECRA fellowship to extend the quality research framework and re-examine the role of consumption in colonial Sydney using archaeological assemblages.
