I’m an osteoarchaeologist with research interests focussed on the study of prehistoric human remains, burials, and chronology. I specialise in the analysis of highly fragmented and co-mingled remains; analysing cremations has given me lots of practice in this. Since completing my PhD at the University of Central Lancashire I have for the most part been working in commercial archaeology.
I’m also the project osteologist for the Central Zagros Archaeology Project which involves the analysis of Pre Pottery Neolithic human remains at a site in Iraqi Kurdistan.
My recent research (on which this blog was started) involves the radiocarbon dating of Early Bronze Age burials in northern England. I’m hoping to carry out a larger project on the radiocarbon dating of Early Bronze Age cremations.
