Bruce Bradley is Professor of Prehistory and Director of the Experimental Archaeology Masters Programme and has extensive experience with Stone Age technologies and experimental archaeology. He was trained in 4-field anthropology at the University of Arizona. His early research was focused on the North American Southwest and Great Plains where he applied an anthropological approach to much of his work. Since then his research has included the Upper Palaeolithic of Russia and France, and horse domestication in Central Asia.  His current areas of research deal with the early peopling of the New World, prehistoric Pueblo archaeology of the American Southwest and skill learning and cognition in hominins. This research is brought to the classroom in many of the modules he teaches.  Bruce is also active in bringing his archaeological and anthropological interests to the public through presentations, teaching, interaction with Native American communities and participation in documentaries.
