BABAO in Liverpool
With a little help from my friends, I found myself in Liverpool for this year's meeting of the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology! The conference was held at Liverpool John Moores University and is geared towards researchers focusing on human biology and evolution, human skeletons and archaeology. I have attended BABAO since living in the UK and this year's conference proved just as enjoyable and stimulating!
This year's conference was particularly unique in linking up with the Being Human Festival (https://beinghumanfestival.org). Events included a public session (see my special guest star below!) and a Meet The Scientist session at the World Museum in Liverpool.
I was also lucky enough to be awarded the Jane Moore prize for best student podium presentation for the conference! It would have been a tough gig for the judges, as there was a very strong show in student research.
More information on the conference and program are available here: https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/conferences/babao
For now, back to getting this PhD written!
