Dr David Ellis directs the forum.

He read Zoology with Biochemistry at New College, Oxford, where his tutor was Prof. Richard Dawkins; he went on to do a Ph.D. in evolutionary genetics at University College London, where his supervisor was Prof. Steve Jones, with whom he has worked for a number of years.

He has also carried out archaeological work in Cambridge, and in the Near East, including museum, excavation & survey work.

His current research interests include reconstructing the biological & archaeological past using genetics; and he has a concern for the accurate representation of science & archaeology within the public domain.
The Forum is supported by a group of local scientists & archaeologists, in various capacities; interns; and also workers & scholars from further afield.
