Biography

Points of reference: projectiles, hunting and identity at Neolithic Catalhoyuk, Turkey

My research interests lie in lithic analysis, projectile technology, the Greek Neolithic and Bronze Age, Neolithic Turkey, hunting in farming societies, and archaeological theory. My PhD research focuses on how social identity is constructed, expressed, and maintained through the social practice of hunting, with specific reference to the cultural biography of stone projectile points from Catalhoyuk, a Neolithic site in central Anatolia (7400-6000 BC). My research will contribute to a better understanding of hunting practices as an arena of symbolic expression and negotiation of power relations within small scale agropastoral societies.
