About

I’m Florence, a games writer, archaeologist and journalist.

Since 2017 I’ve worked as an Historic Environment Consultant in London, while also freelancing as a games writer and journalist. These two parts of my professional experience come together in my academic research into archaeogaming; the intersection of archaeology and video games.

I’m currently doing a PhD in Computer Science on the IGGI programme, making what I’ve coined generative archaeology games.

I am a member of the Knives & Paintbrushes collective.

I’m also a board member of the VALUE Foundation, a non-profit organisation specialising in heritage and video games.
