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!
