When

Thursday 20 May from 6:30pm to 7:30pm

The discipline of archaeology has long been recognised as a canvas for interdisciplinary endeavours. From hard theory to hard science, the questions we ask of the past can be addressed through a plethora of methods, techniques and approaches, using a myriad of evidence, materials and datasets.

Over the course of his own career, Professor Keith Dobney has developed methodologies for using archaeological science to inform interdisciplinary responses to ‘real-world’ issues, including cultural resilience, nature conservation, livestock improvement in the Horn of Africa, anti-microbial resistance, obesity and even predicting back pain. This talk explores some of these examples with an emphasis on the vital role of museum collections in archaeological science.

In conjunction with National Archaeology Week.
