Rick Schulting


Rick Schulting is a lecturer in Scientific and Prehistoric Archaeology at the University of Oxford. His research interests include the Mesolithic and Neolithic of Western Europe, complex hunter-gatherers, transition to agriculture, mortuary analysis, stable isotope analysis and dietary reconstruction, and skeletal evidence of interpersonal violence. For our research areas in both Baikal and Hokkaido, he will be looking at interpersonal violence. For our research in Hokkaido, he will also focus on individual life histories; carbon, nitrogen and strontium isotopes; diet and subsistence; and mobility and migrations.
