Hayley Monroe received her B.A. from Mount Holyoke College in 2008 in Classics. After graduation she attended the Poggio Civitate Archaeological Field School in Italy where she first became interested in conservation. After a couple of seasons she joined the Ziyaret Tepe Archaeological Project near Diyarbakir in the southeast of Turkey. There she was a member of a small field conservation team and worked mostly on ceramics and metals. While in Turkey, she and her colleagues also worked closely with the conservation department at the Diyarbakir Museum to help instruct the staff on how to best care for archaeological material.
She has also volunteered with the Giza Archive Project under Dr. Peter der Manuelian, and interned in the conservation lab of the RISD Museum with Ingrid Neuman where she worked on pieces ranging from 18th and 19th century gilded frames, to polychrome Egyptian statuary, and an 11th century wooden Buddha from Japan. Most recently she has been working with a museum mount maker, working on installations at the RISD Museum, Brown University's Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology, Rough Point Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, and the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut. Her interests include continuing to pursue archaeological site conservation, as well as working with metals and organic materials.
