The resolution of the archaeological record is the critical limiting factor in understanding past human occupation.Dr Ingrid Ward
Dr Ingrid Ward is a geoarchaeologist and Fellow of the Australian Research Council’s Discovery Early Career Researcher Award in UWA’s School of Social Sciences. Her research focuses on understanding the sedimentary and environmental contexts in which archaeological remains are preserved at both the macro- and micro-scale, both onshore and offshore.
The multidisciplinary nature of geoarchaeological research allows Dr Ward to learn from every new site and every new topic she explores and from the people she works with.
Her current research is exploring the natural and cultural processes influencing archaeological site formation at both the macro- and micro-scale. This work is aimed at understanding the complexity of human-landscape dynamics and the pattern of archaeological preservation in Australia. Previous research projects include the ARC Barrow Island Archaeology Project and ARC Deep History of Sea Country.
