Dr Sophy Charlton

Research Profile

I undertook a BSc (Hons) in Archaeology, an MSc in Biomolecular Archaeology and a PhD at the University of York. My PhD research was focused on biomolecular approaches to the British Mesolithic and Neolithic, and incorporated the use of ancient DNA, ZooMS, stable isotope analysis, and ancient proteomics.  My main research interests centre around the use of biomolecular archaeology (ancient DNA, stable isotopes, ancient proteomics) to infer past lifeways and human activities. I have a particular interest in European early prehistory, temporal transitions, death and burial, palaeodiets, and variability in past health and disease states.
