Dr Matthew Meredith-Williams Lecturer - Archaeology, Archaeology

Lecturer in GIS in Archaeology, specialising in human-environmental interactions of hunter-gathers, from Palaeolithic to recent-past populations. Research interests encompass geoarchaeology and environmental reconstruction, coastal and underwater archaeology. I am an active member of the LTU Palaeosciences Labs, and run the Pollen lab. In the field I specialise in the use of total station, DGPS, 3D photogrammetry, environmental and organic sample recovery. I am currently co-CI on the Amanzi Springs Middle Stone Age site - which is one of the oldest sites in the world to have organic preservation; I am engaged in a community-led project with the Wurundjeri to re-date the Murrup Tamboore site (previously referred to as the Keilor Archaeology Area). I am also engaged in research in the Red Sea (with the University of York) and Weipa, Cape York with the University of Auckland.
