For over a decade, Emma has taught field excavation and laboratory courses in anthropology. She is currently undertaking doctoral research at the University of Oxford.
A tour leader of archaeological locations in multiple countries, Emma specialises in off-the-beaten track exploration of cultural and historic monuments, ruins and UNESCO-listed sites.
