I am a zooarchaologist specialising on faunal assemblages from excavations in SW Asia. My background was as a field archaeologist in the UK and I wrote my PhD on faunal assemblages resulting from animal carcasses being processed on a large scale in Post Medieval London and combining this faunal evidence with historical data for the leather, horn and related industries. More recently I spent a number of years working on excavations in Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar and Kuwait, and I now concentrate on the analysis of faunal remains from this area of the world. My current research focus is on Arabian/Persian Gulf fish remains from a range of sites of all periods across the Arabian peninsula as well as the analysis of mammal and bird bone assemblages from Epipalaeolithic sites in the Levant and the surrounding regions.
