ArcHives: Beeswax as a Biomolecular Archive (an exploratory investigation)

Matthew supports a team of postdoctoral and PhD students who are exploring the potential of parchment as a biomolecular archive. His background is almost as mixed as his research team, starting as a marine zoologist, followed by a Geology PhD at (Glasgow), postdoctoral positions in biochemistry and chemistry labs and a stint lecturing in environmental geochemistry before settling down as an archaeologist.
