Visiting Research Fellow

Caroline Wickham-Jones is a well-known Orkney based archaeologist who has written prolifically on many aspects of Orkney’s distant history.  She is currently working on two projects both of which have great relevance to the northern world – one to examine the way in which the landscape of Orkney has changed over the millennia, especially as a result of past sea-level rise, and the second to develop the exciting new evidence that pushes the settlement of Scotland back into the Palaeolithic, four or five thousand years earlier than we previously thought.

Caroline’s website www.mesolithic.co.uk gives more information on her publications and research interests.
