Dr Judith Bunbury



Judith Bunbury is Senior Tutor at St Edmund's and Teaching Associate in Earth Sciences. Her current research takes her to Egypt and Sudan to bore mud in the Nile Valley, kick up dust in the deserts and descend tombs in the Valley of the Kings.  Judith collaborates with a number of archaeological teams in Egypt to deduce ancient environments around sites from the tiny pieces of archaeological evidence contained in the muds and sands of the Nile Valley and deserts.
