Hayley Saul
Lecturer in Archaeology




I completed my PhD in 2011, on the Baltic Foragers and Early Farmers Ceramic Research project, specialising in the study of plant microfossils, particularly in pottery residues. Since then, I have completed a post-doctoral research position in Japan, looking at why some of the earliest pottery in the word was invented.

Most recently, I have set up a fieldwork project in the Nepalese Himalayas called the Himalayan Exploration and Archaeological Research Team (HEART). Alongside fieldwork, HEART collaborates with local communities, NGOs and charities to stimulate the local economies of this developing region of the world using heritage-based initiatives. 



In 2013/14 I will be coordinating the first-year Accessing Archaeology module, and I will also be see teaching first years for History & Theory and Prehistory to the Present.  In the second year, you'll see me for the Mesolithic block of Themes in Prehistory.



At postgraduate level, I will be directing the MA in Mesolithic Studies.
