Dr Emily Johnson

Postdoctoral Research Associate


Emily Johnson specialises in zooarchaeology, the archaeology of animal bones. She is particularly interested in diet and subsistence stress, and in taphonomy and site formation processes. Her research focusses on bone fracture freshness and fragmentation, alongside butchery and taphonomic indicators, to look at how intensively past peoples utilised meat and fat resources available on animal carcasses.

Emily recently completed her PhD as part of the NeoMilk project, an interdisciplinary international ERC-funded investigation into milking in Neolithic temperate Europe. She is currently working as a postdoctoral research associate on the same project. You can keep up to date with Emily’s most recent research on her twitter or Academia pages.
