ABOUT

SAMMUEL

My undergraduate studies at USYD showed me that I was interested in more scientific approaches to archaeology, and so I enrolled in the Master of Archaeological and Evolutionary Science program at ANU. During this time, I realised that my key interests were in the study of human remains, which led to me specialising in Biological Anthropology and Forensic Archaeology. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD at ANU and focusing my research on bioarchaeology.

I am interested in how the social, cultural, and political systems of past human populations affected their health and lifestyles. I have also been fortunate enough to work as an archaeologist on Aboriginal and historic sites in NSW and Queensland, as well as Roman-period sites in Ostia, Italy.

MY ARTEFACT

My grandfather’s Kodak Brownie box camera, which was made in the 1920s, was incredibly popular and ground-breaking in its day. But, compared to a modern digital camera, it is cumbersome and antiquated. I think it perfectly encapsulates how we can admire and be fascinated by the past, but also use the perspective it gives us to appreciate where we are now.
