The postholder under the supervision of the Co-Investigators, will be one of 3 Research Associates based in the Department of Archaeology at Durham University working as a team to engage in key aspects of the project. This post will involve the osteological and isotopic analysis of skeletal assemblages curated in a variety of regional museums in Scotland and the north of England. The post will involve travel for the purpose of analysing, sampling and acquiring datasets.
Tasks will include the full osteological and palaeopathological analysis of human skeletal assemblages, the sampling and preparation of bones and teeth for isotope analysis of strontium, oxygen, carbon and nitrogen, coordinating a programme of radiocarbon dating, and the integration and interpretation of these skeletal data-sets with funerary evidence in order to explore questions of diet, mobility, health and social identity.
