I’m Aoife (Ee-fah)
A doctoral student in archaeological and forensic science.
My PhD project examines the display, obtainment and attitudes towards anatomical fluid preserved human remains in 18th- 19th centuries, as well as what they can tell us about death, dying, and bereavement. I am interested in all things death related, including embalming, grief, disease and the history of medicine and anatomy. My PhD project is funded by the Heritage Consortium/ North East Consortium for Arts and Humanities.
