Professor Pam Crabtree is an Archaeologist and a Professor of Anthropology at New York University in the United States. During her British Academy Visiting Fellowship, she will be working closely with her archaeological colleagues at Bournemouth University on two projects.
Professor Crabtree will be working with Dr. Ellen Hambleton and Professor Mark Maltby on an article-length manuscript that focuses on archaeological evidence for animal husbandry and hunting in the South Caucasus during the Neolithic, Chalcolithic, and Early Bronze Age periods. This region has been historically understudied by archaeologists, and they will be bringing together recently analysed data from South Russia and Armenia. In addition, Professor Crabtree and her colleagues will be laying the groundwork for a broader study of how medieval cities were provisioned with meat and other animal products, drawing on research in the United Kingdom and other parts of northern Europe.
