  • 2. Experimental Archaeology Staff • Linda Hurcombe: stone and bone tools, usewear analysis, hideworking, basketry, fibres and cordage, ceramics and taphonomic processes; worked in community and heritage archaeology and co-investigator on boat project • Bruce Bradley: stone and bone tools (expert knapper), hideworking, fibres and cordage, ceramics; worked in public presentation and currently directing Learning to be Human project
  • 3. Alan Outram: fats, bone/antler tools, taphonomic processes Gill Juleff: archaeometallurgy, smelting and forging iron and lost wax casting; projects in Indian Subcontinent and Exmoor, UK Facilities for experimental archaeology include wet and clean labs, an experimental lab with supplies of materials and equipment, microscopes, kiln, potter’s wheel. There are 2 outdoor areas and the university land has wild and exotic plants and trees.
