Dr Chris Stimpson trained as a zoologist before specialising in the recovery and analysis of archaeological and palaeontological animal bone assemblages. His PhD research (University of Cambridge) focused on large assemblages of bird and bat bones recovered from the Great Cave of Niah in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. He has since held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, and Queen’s University Belfast.
Chris has worked widely in Europe, Southeast Asia, North Africa and the Middle East and has extensive fieldwork experience in varied environments including caves, sand deserts and rainforests. He is currently involved in research projects in Vietnam, Egypt, and Ireland. Chris is particularly interested in the vertebrate zoology and Quaternary collections of the OUMNH and is reviewing early 19th century collections of fossils from the Siwaliks.
