Dr Dustin White

Personal profile


My academic interests are in the fields of geoarchaeology and Eurasian prehistory. For many years I have worked in the Lake Baikal area of southern Siberia investigating late Quaternary floodplain and terrace sequences, multi-proxy lake sediment core data and the archaeological record of the region. Over the last decade I have also been conducting field research at numerous Middle and early Upper Palaeolithic cave and rock shelter sites across western Eurasia as part of several collaborative projects examining volcanic cryptotephra as a means both to resolve site chronological data and to link archaeological and geological records through co-located tephra marker horizons. Currently I am involved in new Leverhulme Trust funded research investigating the role of cryptotephra in refining the chronology and climatic context of human evolution in the Levant.
