Summary

I graduated at the University of Turin (Italy) and completed two Masters and my PhD studies in Marseilles (France) before arriving at the Natural History Museum (NHM, London, UK) in 2002 with a post-doctoral European Grant. I joined the ‘Ancient Human Occupation of Britain’ Project at the NHM in 2005 and since 2012 I have been directing three projects financed by the Calleva Foundation and the Leverhulme Trust. Over the last 12 years I have been pursuing my research in the evolution of human behaviour through the analysis of bone assemblages, aiming to recognise and interpret different expressions of human actions. These include hunting, butchering and feeding choices, production and use of bone and antler artefacts and the cultural modifications of human remains within funerary and cannibalistic practices.
