Exciting news from abroad! Dr Anita Radini, from BioArCh, has recently taken up a prestigious Invited Visiting Professorship at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Sciences, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.

Anita is working for three month at the "DANTE Laboratory" for the study of Diet and Ancient technology, funded by Prof. Emanuela Cristiani as part of Cristiani’s ERC Starting Grant Project HIDDEN FOODS. Radini is working closely with Cristiani (inviting Professor) and Medical Doctors of the Department on various aspects of dental calculus research in ancient skeletal and modern living populations.

This venture will further consolidate the research links and collaboration between Archaeology at York and at Sapienza University of Rome, creating soon new opportunities for students and projects between the two departments. Watch this space!
