Professor in Biological Anthropology, University of Otago

Siân Halcrow is a professor at the University of Otago with research interests in East and Southeast Asian prehistory. She has led and worked on archaeological projects in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, China, Chile and New Zealand. 

Siân’s research interests lie in understanding major human transitions in the past through the experiences of the most vulnerable people in the population: infants and children. Her work interrogates central archaeological questions of the intensification of agriculture and human responses to this seminal time in prehistoric Southeast Asia, East Asia and South America. She also contributes to topical issues in her discipline through her work on the ethics of the study of human remains.
