UKAS Abstracts

UKAS is the biennial international conference for Environmental and Archaeological Science and brings together archaeological scientists from all areas of the field. This year’s event was held at Cardiff (11-14 April).

Leading the way at this year’s conference were York’s BioArCh staff and students who collectively presented 18 talks and posters, more than twice as many as any other institution. Over 13% of all delegates were from York, cementing the Department's commitment to archaeological science. 

The Department is also delighted to announce that its students won prizes in both categories of competition:

John Stewart won 1st prize for the best presentation, looking at What can eggshell tell us about the past? and Jo Simpson won 2nd prize for the best poster presenting her research on Dating bone, one glutamine at a time.
