If you thought time travel was glamorous, you were very wrong. Delving through rubbish and wading through mud - these scientists have some novel ways to unlock secrets from the past.

Stuck in the Mud

Dr Emma Rehn (Postdoctoral Researcher, ARC Centre of Excellence For Australian Biodiversity And Heritage, James Cook University)
@bluerehn
Do you want to travel back in time to explore ancient environments without any pesky paradoxes? Lakes can help. Come along to discover 4,000 years of bushfires in northern Australia using lake mud as our time machine.

Dr Emma Rehn completed her PhD in 2020 investigating links between people and ancient bushfires. Emma is currently a postdoctoral researcher in Archaeology at James Cook University and is the 2022 Pint of Science Artist in Residence.

Small things, big stories

Dr Katherine Woo (Postdoctoral Research Fellow, ARC Centre of Excellence For Australian Biodiversity And Heritage, James Cook University)
@Archaeo_Woo
What can ancient rubbish tell us about past societies and the way people used to live? More than you would think! From food scraps to broken tools, learn how archaeologists are using what people threw away in the past to rewrite human history.

Dr Katie Woo is an archaeologist who studies animal remains to understand how people lived in the past. She currently works at James Cook University as a postdoc with her work taking her across the globe to look at archaeological sites both on land and underwater.
