Exploring both protohistoric and historic contexts, our research draws on our staff's collective expertise in archaeology, biology and chemistry.
We have a diverse range of research interests covering human palaeoecology and environmental archaeology,
Our research is underpinned by our links to BioArCh, a collaborative research facility forging links between laboratory and field.
We are also linked to the Centre for Anatomical and Human Sciences, which adds skills in primate and human anatomy to our strengths.

Research Highlight: ZooMS
Developed at York, ZooMS - short for ZooArchaeology by Mass Spectrometry - is a new method for discerning the origins of previously unidentifiable bone fragments. The method uses a well established approach, peptide mass fingerprinting, allied to high throughput Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry.
This video explains how ZooMS can be used to identify the animal origin of parchment. The method has been used to identify the animal origin of pocket bibles produced in the 13th century.
