Chloe Duckworth Biography – Chloe Duckworth Wiki
Dr. Chloe Duckworth is an archaeological scientist and lecturer in archaeological materials science at Newcastle University. She runs an educational YouTube channel (ArchaeoDuck) and co-present Channel 4’s ‘The Great British Dig’ with actor and comedian Hugh Dennis.
She joined Newcastle University in 2016 from the University of Leicester. At Newcastle University, she teaches undergraduate and postgraduate students about past technologies, experimental archaeology, and archaeological science. She directs the archaeology degree programmes, and co-lead the Newcastle University Centre for Heritage.
Duckworth joined the School of Archaeology and Ancient History’s ERC-funded Trans-Sahara project in January 2014. Her role was to chemically analyse the glasses (vessels, beads, and other jewellery) using a range of specialist techniques, and to place the results into a broader context, particularly in terms of trade and technological transfer. In 2015, Duckworth was awarded a British Academy postdoctoral fellowship for a project investigating Roman and medieval glass recycling in the 1st millennium AD Mediterranean.
Her other research interests include identity (particularly that of craftspeople), the human use and manipulation of colour, past recycling practices, and the mechanisms of technological transfer. She is particularly interested in technological practices in regions that are perceived to be on the margins, or outside of, the ‘core’ areas of technological development.
She has been involved in numerous archaeological projects in the UK, Iran, North Africa, Greece, and Spain. She has directed archaeological fieldwork at two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Spain: The Alhambra (Granada, Spain) and the geophysical and geochemical survey of the 10th-century madina of Madinat al-Zahra (Cordoba, Spain).
She holds a PhD in archaeological chemistry, and a masters of science in archaeological materials, both from the University of Nottingham. She has a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship, and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, according to Past Preservers.
Her PhD focused on the chemical analysis and materiality of the earliest glasses, from the Late Bronze Age to the Roman period, and developed the application of novel analytical techniques in the field. Chloe went on to develop an interest in Late Antique and Islamic pyrotechnology and technological interaction, and established an interdisciplinary research project and network (The al-Andalus Glass Project) exploring glasses and glazed ceramics from the Muslim and Christian periods in the Iberian Peninsula. In the period following the award of her PhD, Chloe was engaged as an adjunct lecturer at the University of Nottingham, responsible for convening and teaching a number of modules (both lecture-based and practical-oriented) for under- and post-graduate students.
