By Dr Val Williamson

I started writing for the Decoded Science website in the last week of May 2012. This is not a general interest website like the others I write for, so I have to think things through quite carefully before I hit the 'publish' button!

My role is as Anthropology writer. This makes sense on several levels: firstly, my PhD is in Cultural Studies, with Ethnography my primary research method; secondly, I always said if I took another degree it would be in science (I won't be taking another degree just now, though!); thirdly, I love reading and writing about the latest archaeological discoveries, especially if they are filling in details on the historical timeline; fourthly I have quite a few anthropology and archaeology articles at Suite101.com already. Oh, and I'm also a member of the Royal Anthropological Institute, which is useful!

So far at Decoded Science I have written about Dendrochronology, have interviewed an expert in Biblical ceramics about finding a priceless jewellery hoard at Armageddon, and covered the story on the new earlier NEANDERTHAL date for the World Heritage Site cave paintings in Spain.
