The Kate & Gareth Griffith Scholarship in Quaternary Science Arts of Climate Reconstruction: An arts practice-based PhD exploring the use of fossils to reconstruct past climates.

Research responds to ongoing excavations at Gully Cave in Somerset, which are recovering rich assemblages of fossilised plant and animal remains within an area rich in Paleolithic and Pleistocene cave sites. Through ceramic and needlepoint sculpture, writing and artists books, this practice-based project seeks to view an essentially nonhuman dwelling place through a poetic or metaphorical lens of domestic interior and exterior spaces.

Supervised by Professor Danielle Schreve, Director of the Centre for Quaternary Research, and Professor Harriet Hawkins, Co-Director of the Centre for the GeoHumanities.
