Dr Francesca Dolcetti

I am a Digital Archaeologist and Heritage Practitioner with research interests in User Experience Design and the integration of Values-led and Participatory Design practices in archaeology and heritage. I explore the impact and benefits of embedding values-led and human-centred design methods into the archaeological and heritage sectors, to develop theoretical and practical guidelines for crafting more ethical, critically engaged and sustainable archaeology and heritage practices.

Through my research I seek to address key challenges faced by the archaeological and heritage sectors in their ethical commitment to advance and share knowledge of the past, engage with diverse groups of people and provide opportunity for participation and connection with a shared human past.
