Artefact Analysis

I am an experienced analyst of prehistoric and early historic leather artefacts holding a PhD in this speciality field from the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom.


My expertise is in the determination of tannage technology, construction sequence and object biographies based on macro and microscopic visual and behavioural characteristics. I can offer secondarily, species identification based on leather and hair characteristics.  

Please contact me to discuss your project, as prices are quoted on a case by case basis.
