Researching African Environmental Archaeologies
With Dr Ashley Coutu, Research Curator (African Archaeology) and Deputy Head of Research
Ashley's research crosses fields such as historical and medieval archaeology, African archaeology, isotope ecology, zoo archaeology and historical ecology. Her research contributes to historical ecology, unravelling the relationship between humans and elephants in the past and applying that knowledge to modern conservation as well as preserving cultural heritage in protected landscapes, such as national parks and game reserves.
