High–flying Emily Norton gets Rwanda ready


Former University of Lincoln student Emily Norton, now Forensic Anthropologist and Archaeologist, is in preparation for a trip to Rwanda, location of the 1994 Genocide.

Once there, Emily will form part of a team who will be responsible for undertaking anthropological examination and documentation of the victims of the 1994 Genocide; working closely with survivors and survivor’s families to learn about the atrocities incurred. Artefacts will be conserved and preserved to ensure that the memory of the 1994 Genocide is kept alive and maintained for future generations.

The trip will mark a challenging yet rewarding year for Emily, who has spent time presenting her unique Masters research at various international conferences.

Emily is in regular contact with the University of Lincoln and is keen to share her knowledge and expertise with current students and is an alumni advisor for the Alumni Knowledge Bank scheme; designed to develop the employability of students and prepare them for a career in their chosen industry by accessing the skills, knowledge and expertise of Alumni experts. The Alumni Knowledge Bank enables students to ask our graduates questions based around occupational knowledge, required skills, work experience or even general careers advice. With a vast array of work experience and placements, as well as an excellent academic background, students with the same area of interest are sure to benefit from Emily’s skills, knowledge and experience.

Emily advises; “Even in the current climate, students should stay positive, enthusiastic and never let anyone forget their name! It is really hard work to get a job in the current climate however, with determination and a strategy in place you are more likely to be successful in accessing your desired career path”

Let’s wish her the best of luck!
