Archaeological Fish Resource Workshops
The workshops were held at the Universities of Bradford, Cambridge, Bournemouth and York, and were led by world-leading experts in fish analysis: Andrew Jones, James Barrett, Alison Locker, Shelia Hamilton-Dyer and Rebecca Nicholson. To capture and distil the expertise available at these events, all of the workshops were filmed and the resulting footage was cut together to produce a series of training e-lectures.
Images from the first workshop
Alongside the workshops, the project created Fishbone, a digital reference collection. Whilst handling collections will always be the optimal resource for fish analysis, our online reference collection provides high-resolution digital images for key skeletal elements, taken at different views, for more than 90 species of Mediterranean and North Atlantic freshwater and marine fishes.
