Great news that all my four conference abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the upcoming Australasian Society for Human Biology 30th Annual Conference held in Dunedin, Otago, NZ at the beginning of December. I have involved some of my research students in a couple of my projects, and there are also two presentations by my supervisees. Our results stem from national and international collaborations:
2016. Bridge A, Miszkiewicz JJ, Oxenham M. Bridging the gap: Looking at new ways to identify stature in forensics using contemporary Australian anthropometric data. (co-supervision with Oxenham at ANU)
2016. Walker M, Mahoney P, Brennan-Olsen SL, Miszkiewicz JJ. Human palaeophysiology in Medieval England: preliminary results. (collaboration with Kent, UK; Melbourne, AU)
2016. Miszkiewicz JJ, Stewart T, Mahoney P. Biorhythms in bone metabolism: To what extent does osteocyte lacunae density relate to human stature? (collaboration with Kent, UK)
2016. Miszkiewicz JJ, Bennett C, Johns SE, Morgan C, Mahoney P. Bone microstructure variation with sex in Medieval England. (collaboration with Kent, UK; Wellington, NZ)
I have recently written a book chapter about histological imaging techniques in an archaeological context as part of a new title edited by Tim Thompson and David Errickson (Teesside University) entitled "Human Remains: Another Dimension". The book is now in press and should be out at the beginning of 2017. Very exciting!
