Her thesis investigated the use of bone chemistry for the ageing and sexing of fragmentary archaeological skeletons. Mandy worked for three and a half years as a research assistant at the Department of Applied Biology and Food Science at the South Bank Polytechnic, London. Here she began research on the problems fo dating techniques, based on the accumulation of trace elements by buried hard tissues. She also worked at the Natural History Museum and carried out fieldwork at sites in East Africa. In 1986 Mandy was awarded a fellowship at Durham University where her research focuses on skeletal and dental measures of health, nutrition and growth for past populations from the North east of England and is also involved in work in Egypt.
