Chair: Claire Harris

I am a Palaeolithic archaeologist at the British Museum employed on a Leverhulme-funded project, Mapping Palaeolithic Britain. I have worked in commercial and academic archaeology and heritage education since the late-1990s.

As a museum archaeologist I am particularly interested in exploring how we can use existing collections to answer new questions. My PhD, Spatial Approaches to Legacy Data, explored this topic using data from French excavations carried out during the 1950s and 60s. My current research focuses on the Lower and Middle Palaeolithic British record but I am also involved with excavation projects at Upper Palaeolithic British sites.
