The School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences uniquely integrates Archaeological Sciences, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Archaeology and Forensic Sciences to further the study of people, their society and their environments in the present and the past. Our approach is profoundly multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, bridging the sciences and the humanities.
This vision is promoted through the school's specialist groups including the Biological Anthropology Research Centre, the Stable Isotope Centre and Bradford Visualisation, the university centre where archaeologists and forensic scientists use the latest technologies to capture, image, analyse and disseminate every aspect of archaeological activity. From digital objects to landscapes, geophysics, GIS and the creation of virtual environments, Together the School promotes provides new ways to see and understand our past, present and future and uses leading research to inform teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Post-doctoral Research Fellow (Fragmented Heritage)
Research Fellow at the University of Bradford. His background is broad based with a strong theme of applying and developing novel techniques to archaeological problems. This has primarily being in stone tool analysis where he has introduced the use of trace-element microanalysis and surface metrology to bring quantification to the field of lithic functional studies.
It is this latter use of surface metrology, explored through an AHRC digital transformations fellowship, that developed into the idea of using surface texture data in the process of refitting, the basis for the fragmented heritage project.
