Michelle Langley

I am a senior research fellow in the Australian Research Centre for Human Evolution and lecturer in Archaeology in the School of Environment and Science at Griffith University in Brisbane. My research centers around understanding the origins and development of human behavioral uniqueness, with particular focus on: Hunter-gatherer technologies, Australian archaeology, Neanderthal behavioral complexity and interaction with modern humans, Paleolithic Europe, and identifying children in the deep past. I undertake traceology (reconstructing how tools/ornaments were made and used via observation of microscope marks and residues) of bone, ivory, antler, marine shell, and ochre artifacts from around the globe, collaborating with researchers based both in Australia and abroad to understand the people who produced these artifacts.
