Martin Jones

Martin Jones was the first George Pitt-Rivers Professor of Archaeological Science at the University of Cambridge. He works on archaeobotany and archaeogenetics, in the context of the broader archaeology of food. His current research interests include the spread of farming of both major and minor crops across Asia, most recently in the context of the Food Globalization in Prehistory Project. His latest project is exploring the co-evolution and Eurasian biogeography of crops and bees.
