Marion was brought up in the local area and although she has lived elsewhere around the UK and abroad, she’s been back ‘home’ for 20 years now. How time flies!
Now retired, her professional background was in finance and finance systems but she has always had an interest in history and in particular in social history and history ‘from below’.
She holds a Law LLB and studied for an MA in History of Medicine after retiring.
Both of these involved looking at the social aspects of various historical topics and research for the MA in particular fuelled her interest in doing more along these lines but it was never clear how, what or where it could be useful…until she was introduced to the Heritology Project.
Marion enjoys working collaboratively and is looking forward to helping to bring awareness of the history and people of the local area to new audiences across the community…and in the process learning more about it herself!
