This lecture explores the way in which recent scientific advances are helping to shed new light on museum collections.
Evening Lecture with Sam A Neil Thursday 30 March, 7 - 8.30pm This lecture explores the way in which recent scientific advances are helping to shed new light on museum collections. It shows how strontium isotope analysis is being applied to provide new archaeological information about the osteological collections curated by Corinium Museum. The way in which strontium isotope analysis is enabling us to study the lives of early farming communities in Britain is illustrated using new results from the site of Hazleton North, a Neolithic burial monument in Gloucestershire, England. Samantha Neil has a BA in Archaeology from the University of Southampton and MPhil in Archaeological Science from the University of Cambridge and has worked on the collections in museums across Britain as part of a PhD, being undertaken at Durham University Booking essential
