The Life of Owens
I am a bioarchaeologist and biological anthropologist, living and working in London.
I teach human osteology and related subjects during term time, although I spend as much time as I can away on projects in Peru, Egypt, Bolivia, Ghana, and South Africa, among others.
I also take tours around London, and enjoy teaching kids about history, art and archaeology, which I dress up with a Horrible Histories approach that sneaks in a lot of knowledge under the guise of revolting observation.
However, I live for fieldwork, and have been travelling about doing archaeological digs on five continents since 1992.
We had a great tour with Lawrence today at the British Museum. He was patient, funny and extremely knowledgeable! We will recommend him to all of our friends visiting London
We had a great tour of the British Museum today with you! Matthew is still reciting the four George’s, the number of artifacts in the museum and the crazy hat theory
