I graduated from Birmingham University in 2005 having studied Ancient History and Archaeology and then took a year out to work as a careers assistant. During this time, I decided to apply for a master’s degree at Durham University (Palaeopathology) after which I went straight into a NERC-funded PhD entitled ‘An Osteological and Biomolecular Study of Prehistoric Tuberculosis in Britain’. I am now in the final year of the PhD so I’m being kept very busy! My interests are primarily infectious disease, weapon trauma, and the history of medicine with a strong focus on outreach and how human remains are represented in museums. I’m a committee member for the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology (BABAO) and am very pleased to now be representing CBA North students
Along with Kirsty I am one of the Student Representatives for CBA North. I graduated from Durham University in 2005 where I studied Anthropology followed by an MSc in Palaeopathology. I then took a couple of years break from studying and worked in contract archaeology in the UK and Ireland, spending time working out on site as well as in the lab doing osteological analysis (along with a brief stint in historic building recording!). I’m currently a second year PhD student at the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies at Newcastle University. My research is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and looks at how the excavation and reburial of archaeological human remains are portrayed by the British Press, and the impact and attitudes to this.
