The Heritage Girl is a blog written by Naomi Daw that explores her adventures in museums, galleries and heritage.
The motto of The Heritage Girl is ‘my history, your history, our shared heritage.’ This reflects Naomi’s passion for our shared national – and international – heritage. Everything, from the smallest coin or pin to castles or natural landmarks, is part of our heritage. It’s something everyone in society has some degree of interest in. She hopes that by sharing her experiences in the heritage sector on The Heritage Girl, some of her passion for the past comes across – and someone else may inspired to find out more about heritage objects and sites around them.
Naomi is an independent researcher and heritage professional. She is a Visitor Services Officer Brighton & Hove Museums, based mainly at the Royal Pavilion & Garden and Brighton Museum & Art Gallery. In addition to working in these buildings, Naomi also enjoys volunteering in the gardens and garden archive on the Royal Pavilion Estate. Naomi has previously enjoyed working with the Sussex Archaeological Society at Lewes Castle and Anne of Cleves House.
An experienced speaker, Naomi has given talks on a variety of topics including eighteenth century panoramas, the landscape paintings of Eric Ravilious, and stereoscopic photographs of Egypt (because who doesn’t love to look at mummies in 3D?). She is open to take bookings for talks and lectures on arts, heritage, and cultural topics.
Naomi is also available to give private, heritage themed walking tours of historic towns across Sussex and Kent.
