We are excited to welcome Dr Alice Rose to the project. Alice is a bioarchaeologist specialising in the isotopic analysis of archaeological skeletal remains. Before joining the FoodCult project, Alice completed her PhD and a Postdoctoral Research Associate position as part of the ‘After the Plague: Health and History in Medieval Cambridge’ project at the University of Cambridge. Alice will work at Durham University, with Prof Janet Montgomery and Dr Darren Gröcke, on the isotope component of the project. Human remains have already been sampled from a range of 14 burial sites relating to the early modern period. These include Carrickmines, Clogh Oughter and King John’s Castle. We look forward to sharing some exciting results.
