Prof. Lisa-Marie Shillito. Geordie. Coprolites. Microscopes. I work at Newcastle University, UK where I teach various topics in archaeological science and research training for dissertation students. I am also director of the archaeology laboratories including NeMCAS (Newcastle Material Culture Analytical Suite) and the Earthslides facility, a lab specialising in producing thin sections of soil and sediments for archaeology and earth science. Prior to joining Newcastle I held a research fellowship at Edinburgh University, and postdoctoral positions at the University of York and the University of Reading. I started out as a geographer and along the way became a geoarchaeologist. My research broadly looks at human-environment dynamics and how this changes over time in different geographic regions.
