ABOUT LAWRENCE

Hello and welcome to my outpost on the web!


I am a bioarchaeologist and biological anthropologist, living and working in London. I teach human osteology and related subjects during term time, although I spend as much time as I can away on projects in Peru, Egypt, Bolivia, Ghana, and South Africa, among others. I also take tours around London, and enjoy teaching kids about history, art and archaeology, which I dress up with a Horrible Histories approach that sneaks in a lot of knowledge under the guise of revolting observation. However, I live for fieldwork, and have been travelling about doing archaeological digs on five continents since 1992. I write about mummies, burials, bones, cultural heritage and anything else that seems relevant. 

I am also a photographer and collect African and other non-western art. Drop by and see me sometime!
