Conferences:

  • OGU members Melanie Roffet-Salque, Simon Hammann and Jamie Lewis attended the 2017 UK Archaeological Science conference (UKAS) which was held at UCL. Melanie presented a paper titled "Towards the elucidation of the presence of long-chain fatty acids in archaeological lipid extracts from pottery" and Jamie presented a poster titled "'A Pif of a Problem'. Unpicking δ15N trophic systematic at the individual amino acids level".
  • The Terrestrial Greenhouse Earth System ERC funded project (T-GRES) hosted a workshop (22nd-23rd May) at Bristol's M-Shed. The aim of the workshop was to discuss extreme warm climates throughout the history of the earth and how they help us understand the future of our planet. OGU members Rich Pancost, David Naafs, Gordon Inglis and Matt Carmichael organised and attended the event.
