Current Research in Nubian Archaeology offers a compilation of scientific and archaeological reflections on the daily life and health of ancient Nubians. The volume developed out of the first Sudan Studies Conference, hosted by Durham University, UK, in May 2017. The conference created a platform for interdisciplinary discourse between scholars which resulted in the new and innovative approaches to a wide range of topics, including bioarchaeology, ethno-archaeology and pottery that comprise this volume.
Samantha Tipper is a bioarchaeologist with experience working on Anglo Saxon and Sudanese material. She uses a biocultural approach to research the daily life, demography, health and activity of past populations.
Gemma Tully holds a PhD in Archaeology. Her research focuses on heritage management and museum studies. She is interested in collaborative heritage practice and has worked on a number of participatory projects in Egypt and Sudan.
