Excited to announce that the D M McDonald Grants and Awards Fund has agreed to fund my fieldwork this summer to the Neanderthal Rock Shelter site of Le Rozel in France. This site has previously unearthed a large collection of adult and children Neanderthal footprints (read all about it here). I was last on site in 2018 and the site is absolutely amazing! I’ll be heading back this summer to assist in further excavations but also to conduct a few biomechanical analyses in collaboration with Dr Dominique Cliquet… stay tuned for more information later this year!
