ARPA 101 Archaeology of Civilisations
• Pacific Archaeology
Alice caught the Pacific archaeology bug at Simon Fraser University in Canada when she worked with collections of ancient pottery from Fiji and Tonga collected by Professor David Burley. Interested in questions of migration and interaction she saw ancient DNA as an excellent tool to examine these aspects of prehistoric culture which led her to study the Pacific chicken. This in turn led her to a PhD at the University of Auckland where she studied commensal models with Professor Lisa Matisoo-Smith. Alice continues to be interested in migration and interaction in the Pacific and will be looking for new tools to help to uncover prehistoric relationships within the islands of the Pacific and along the eastern and western continental boundaries. However, her work with the chicken will continue and has now extended well beyond the Pacific to understand initial domestication events and global dispersals of this important domestic bird. In addition her work with the chicken has expanded well beyond the Pacific in an attempt to document initial domestication events and global dispersals of this important domestic bird.
