Hello!

Hi everyone!

I've recently started as a science technician after graduating from my MSc in Bioarchaeology last August. I have no training as a technician so I'm very glad to have come across this site! My first few weeks have been a baptism of fire as the other technician has been off sick. I've had to find my feet pretty quickly but I'm really enjoying learning new things. I'm looking forward to being part of this community and developing my skills as a lab technician!

Thank you :) No - no medieval cesspits for me. My specialism is palaeoproteomics (ancient proteins) and in particular analysing proteins from dental calculus deposits!
Nearly as bad given the level of tooth decay before widespread dentistry al least with them being so ancient no smell! One of my long standing interests outside work is history and archaeology having spent my formative years in York during the many archaeological digs being observed (from 1971 onwards) on the 1900th anniversary of the founding of the city in 70AD.
