Dr Lucy Veale

Research Associate History


Personal Statement

I joined the Department of History at the University of Liverpool in February 2017. Prior to this appointment I worked as a Research Fellow in the School of Geography at the University of Nottingham.

Between December 2013 and December 2016 I worked alongside Professor Georgina Endfield on the project '‘Spaces of experience and horizons of expectation’: Extreme weather in the UK, past, present and future' funded by the AHRC under the Care for the Future theme. Together with the rest of the research team we created the first multi-regional weather history of the UK, spanning a period of over 400 years.

After completing my PhD at the University of Nottingham in summer 2010 I worked on a number of linked research projects, 'Bringing Landscape to Life: Environmental Histories at Sheringham Park, 1812-2012', 'Landscaped Estates of the 1800s', and 'Weather Walks, Weather Talks', all funded by AHRC and on the AHRC's Landscape and Environment Programme, directed by Professor Stephen Daniels.
