Bone / Antler
I graduated from the University of York in 1994 with a BA in Archaeology and started making replica Viking Age artefacts in 1999, while working at the Jorvik Viking Centre.
Graduated archaeological studies with specialization of archaeological monuments' conservation at NCU in Toruń, Poland. I specialize in archaeological objects' conservation made of organic material: wood, leather, textiles, and antlers.
Doctor in archaeology, I specialised in the study of Mesolithic and Neolithic bone industries from Eastern Europe. By combining methods of technological analysis and experimental archaeology, my research focus on the last hunters-gatherers communities from Central Russia.
I am a lecturer in the School of Geography, Archaeology and Environmental at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Archaeologist using experimental archaeology (production and use of antler combs) to be able to interpret traces on early medieval combs through use wear analysis.
I am a biological anthropologist, and have been using experimental archaeology in research and teaching since my graduate school days. I first built a cremation pyre and cremated a pig in 1990, and have refined that experiment several times.
I work in the field of experimental archaeology for more than 15 years. Mainly, I specialize in the analysis of function (using use-wear method) of the prehistoric stone and bone/ antler tools.
