Hey, I’m Sadie. My speciality is in Osteology and Anglo-Saxon burial practices, but I am interested in: gaining more technical expertise, lab focused work and possibly aDNA analysis. I’m also interested in medieval archaeology and possibly learning a relevant language! Ideally I would like to work in the SE Yorkshire area as that’s where my family lives.

Hello! I’m the Director for Transylvania Bioarchaeology, which is a non-profit educational organisation. We mostly do field schools and training but we are female-led and aim to empower womxn and other underrepresented groups in bioarchaeology. We also, to my knowledge, run the only care-friendly field school in order to support women with caring responsibilities or disabled people who need additional support.

Jennifer Gonissen
PhD Candidate
Faculty of Medicine, Brussels: Belgium
LOOKING FOR MENTOR

I am initially an art historian and a certified teacher in art history and archaeology. I am also a graduate from the University of Sheffield 2013 and now back in Belgium on my 3rd year of PhD, in Biomedical sciences, and a Teaching Assistant in human osteology and anatomy in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Brussels. In Sheffield I had an amazing female tutor for the MSc thesis, and now I am more dealing with old-fashioned male supervisors so actually I could use some support from the members of Women In Archaeology myself.

Here’s a small bio: https://careers.dept.shef.ac.uk/casestudies/students/casestudy.php?id=3352My current research is a pluridisciplinary research on a collection of human remains gathered but the first Anthropological Society of Belgium in late 19th century (archives research, osteological analysis, trauma, pathology, paper analysis and preservation…)
