Dr. Michelle Marie Alexander

Senior Lecturer

Research interests

I am interested in the application of bioarchaeological techniques to understand diet, economy and subsistence in past societies. I mainly concentrate on the use of stable isotopes to investigate these themes in historic societies of the Meditteranean, particulalrly Medieval Iberia and Southern Italy where issues of cultural coexistance, social identity and political conquest may be explored. I also have expertise in the application of ancient DNA analysis to ancient human and animal populations.
