Penny Crook is a historical archaeologist who specialises in urban assemblage analysis, material-culture studies and digital research methods. She draws on cross disciplinary research in consumption studies to analyse and interpret material culture derived from Australian historical archaeological sites. She has conducted detailed analyses of historic trade catalogues, pioneered the examination of quality in historical archaeological assemblage analysis in Sydney and London and developed a theoretical framework for archaeologies of value in the modern world. She has designed customised databases for artefact identification and other heritage applications and helped establish and maintain domain-specifc repositories for archaeological data. She is currently collaborating on the re-creation of FAIMS software for FAIR field data collection.
