President - Marcos Martinón-Torres
Marcos Martinón-Torres is Pitt-Rivers Professor of Archaeological Science at the University of Cambridge. He is also Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Archaeological Science, in addition to other roles in editorial, peer-review and charitable boards.
His main research interests centre around material culture and technologies, the context of innovations, and knowledge transmission. He approaches these subjects through a combination of analytical studies of archaeological materials, experiments, and historical sources – very often in collaboration with doctoral students. Some of his most prominent projects have focused on the archaeology of European alchemy and chemistry, the making of China’s Terracotta Army, and the archaeometallurgy of gold in South America.
