Author: Jody Joy

Jody Joy is the Senior Curator for British and European Archaeology. He specialises in the archaeology of northwest Europe during the first millennium BC, but his research interests also include the later Bronze Age and early Roman periods. His main interests concern art and technology and he is currently involved in research projects examining: the technology of Iron Age cauldrons and their role as feasting vessels; Iron Age torcs and their relationship with the human body; and the role of so-called Celtic art in Iron Age society. He is also interested in human remains, particularly exploring issues surrounding display and storage in museums.
