Hi, my name is Alex Fitzpatrick! I’m a zooarchaeologist, current PhD candidate at the University of Bradford, and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
I received my BA in Classical Archaeology, Anthropology, and Special Honours from CUNY Hunter College in 2015.
In 2016, I received my MSc in Archaeological Sciences from the University of Bradford. My dissertation was titled Fishing, Diet, and Environment in the Iron Age of the Northern Isles.
If you’re interested in developing a zooarchaeology workshop or activity for students, feel free to drop me a message! I’m happy to do in-person or remote demonstrations and lectures for classrooms.
My current research involves analysis of the taphonomic characteristics of faunal assemblages from the Covesea Caves in north-east Scotland. For more information, please check out our project website: Covesea Caves Project.
