Our Archaeology Tutor, Dr Alex Pryor, has started a new job at the University of Southampton as a post-doctorate researcher on a Leverhulme-funded project looking a food storage in the Palaeolithic. Alex also remains associated with the McDonald Institute for Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. He hopes that AS Archaeology students who have enjoyed their courses and passed their exams will consider applying to universities to read Archaeology (and get plenty of field practice as well). Alex himself has been on fieldwork in the Czech Republic this month. So start applying!
