Linzi is a qualified osteoarchaeologist, currently undertaking her doctoral research into the dental health of past populations at the University of Sheffield and working for John Moore Heritage Services on an associate basis.
Having started her career in archaeology at the age of 15, she has worked as an archaeologist on a wide range of sites, both rural and urban, covering prehistoric to post-medieval periods. In 2004 she decided to specialise in the study of human remains and is now very experienced in handling and excavating both inhumed and cremated human remains. Working in commercial archaeological units across the country has enabled her to understand the time and budget constraints that commercial units often face, and she is able to produce high quality skeletal assessment and analysis reports under strict deadlines. As well as human remains, Linzi is able to assess small/medium sized animal bone assemblages.
Linzi is a current member of the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteology (BABAO).
She is available for consultation and private contract work. Skeletal reports and references available on request.
