I am an archaeological scientist interested in ancient labour division in past and traditional societies. I study the impact on health of ancient crafting activities. I am particularly interested in 'dusty' crafts such (as pottery, pigments, dyes making, textile production). My current research is funded by Wellcome Trust as Research Fellowship in Medical Humanities (2018-2021) for the project 'A taste of hard work: assessing the utility of ancient tartar to track exposure to respiratory irritants of occupational origin in ancient skeletal remains' (BioArCh-YEAR Centre; University of York; Wellcome Trust grant 209869/Z/17/Z). You can follow my work on Tweeter @ancient_tartar and on the project web site:
