New Volunteer Researcher – Harriet Beadnell PhD student

We have a new student volunteer, working on adding data to the Antique Dealer Project Interactive Map website – see the Map here

Harriet Beadnell, is a PhD student from University of York, researching the role and representation of World War Two Veterans, Post 1945 – Harriet is an AHRC White Rose PhD student – i.e. her PhD is funded through the White Rose Consortium (Leeds, Sheffield & York universities) – and we are so pleased that she has joined the Antique Dealer project as a project volunteer.

Harriet also has antique dealer DNA in her blood – her maternal grandfather, Jim Phillips, had a number of antique shops in and around Saltburn and Middlesborough after WWII; and her paternal grandfather was an antiques  collector and later worked as a stamp & coin dealer post WWII – so Harriet comes with a great antique dealing pedigree!

We are currently seeking more project volunteers to add data to the Project Interactive Website, so if you think you might be able to help do email the project – – we offer short training sessions on adding data to the website, and once you are set up, you can add data from anywhere!…all you need is basic computer skills….so nothing too complicated!

Thank you to Harriet for her enthusiastic help on the project – we could not deal with the masses of data still to add into the Interactive Map website without such help and support!
