The programme for this year's WCO-IOF-ESCEO to be held in Florence, Italy in March is now available for download: http://www.wco-iof-esceo.org/friday-24 - together with my collaborators from Melbourne University and University of Cantabria (Spain), we will be running a symposium on social determinants of bone health. I am particularly excited about this event, because it has been my goal for many years to participate in a symposium that combines biological anthropology and clinical research!
I have recently returned from our annual bioarchaeology field school in the Philippines run jointly by the ANU (Prof Marc Oxenham) and the University of the Philippines (Prof Victor Paz). This was my first time excavating human and animal skeletal remains along with material culture. Our field school is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students, so do get in touch if you are interested in joining us next year. Here's more information:
