Miss Charlotte King
I have a first class BSc (Hons) in Anthropology and Geology from the University of Otago in New Zealand, where I worked in the fields of biological anthropology and geochemistry. I am currently working on PhD research at Durham University with Dr Alex Bentley and Dr Una Strand-Vidarsdottir. I am interested in South East Asian prehistory, using isotopic analysis to reconstruct past community structures, and the study of genetic relationships using morphometric comparisons.
My PhD research focuses on patterns of migration and evolution of kinship structures in the prehistoric Mun River Valley of Thailand. I am using Strontium, Carbon and Oxygen isotopes in dental enamel and geometric morphometric analysis of cranial shape to achieve this. I hope this work will clarify how community structures in the past have evolved, and show in greater detail the development of civilisation in the region.
