About Me

Hi, my name is Alex Fitzpatrick! I’m a zooarchaeologist, and current PhD candidate at the University of Bradford.

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.

I’m currently one of the hosts of the zooarchaeology podcast ArchaeoAnimals on the Archaeology Podcast Network – new episodes drop every first Tuesday of the month!

For inquiries, please contact me at animalarchaeology@gmail.com.
