Hi Scott, I came across your flickr account as I was looking for some photographs of Egypt and I really like your style.

I currently own this blog: www.thaqafamagazine.com - no money is made from it and it's something I do on the side to provide a positive view of MENA. I would like to ask  you if I could please use some of your photos of Egypt on the site? Of course you will be credited and I will add any social media handles you wish to the page.

Hope to hear from you soon regarding this.

Thanks,
Noora (thaqafamagazine@hotmail.com)

As Mexico City archaeologists sort through the surreal array of Aztec sacrificial skulls recently uncovered while excavating their city's subway system, it's worth remembering that parts of the London Underground were also tunneled, blasted, picked, and drilled through a labyrinth of plague pits and cemeteries.

Science, philosophy and technology run on the model of American Idol – as embodied by TED talks – is a recipe for civilisational disaster

(in the basilica): "Chie, I hope your hemorrhoids rub together so much that they hurt worse than when they ever have before!"
  Most folks associate Pompeii with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, an event which simultaneously killed an estimated 16,000 people and “froze” the surrounding area in ash, leaving an entire city nearly perfectly preserved for posterity. But though we often project a staid aura on subjects of antiquity, one of Pompeii’s more endearing qualities is its preservation of the less respectable (but more recognizable) aspects of humanity.

Introduction
I'm a bioarchaeologist working primarily in Egypt and Turkey these days. I've also worked in England, Italy, Sudan, Mexico, Canada and the US.

My doctoral research focused on the use of dental morphological traits to assess the biological affinities of a Late Roman Period skeletal population from the Dakhleh Oasis, Egypt.

Other research interests: 
  • Human osteology
  • Paleopathology
  • Forensic anthropology
  • Mortuary archaeology and the anthropology of mortuary rituals
