Dr Catherine Sinnott

Excavation Manager/Osteoarchaeologist

Catherine studied Archaeology and History at University College Cork and then completed a Master’s in Human Osteoarchaeology. This was followed by doctoral studies at Cranfield University, looking at the bioarchaeological manifestation of scurvy in the remains of Georgian sailors.

Catherine joined Border as an osteoarchaeologist in 2015. She divides her time between fieldwork and osteoarchaeological projects. Catherine’s research interests include post-medieval cemeteries, the paleopathological manifestation of metabolic diseases in the human skeleton and aging techniques especially in sub-adult individuals. Her specialism also covers cremated human remains and she is currently working on Roman period cremations.
