We are very pleased to announce the start of our newest Lecturer in Zooarchaeology, Dr David Orton. Apart from assuming the role of Director of Studies of the department's MSc in Zooarchaeology, David will be teaching on a range of undergraduate and Master's modules. 

David's research stretches from Neolithic herding in the Balkans and Turkey to (post)medieval fisheries in the North Sea and North Atlantic. As a specialist in the analysis of archaeological animal remains, he is currently particularly interested in developing tools and methods for large-scale synthesis of bone data. More detail on David's teaching, research, and external engagement activities is available via his staff webpages:
