I am currently Human Skeletal Biologist for English Heritage, based in Portsmouth. For my PhD thesis (Southampton, 1987) I studied social organisation and social change in the Early and Middle Bronze Age of Central Europe. I sit on the Advisory Panel on the Archaeology of Burials in England, which I co-founded. I am also currently on the managing committee of the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology and a committee member of the Society for the Study of Childhood in the Past. I am a casual lecturer at the Department of Archaeology, University of Edinburgh, Book reviews editor for the International Journal for the Study of Childhood in the Past, and Associate Editor, American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
