Global warming at the end of the last Ice Age led to the inundation of vast landscapes that had once been home to thousands of people. These lost lands hold a unique and largely unexplored record of settlement and colonisation linked to climate change over millennia.
Within the Europe's Lost Frontiers project, researchers in the fields of archaeo-geophysics, molecular biology and computer simulation are seeking to explore the past environments, ecological change and the transition between hunter gathering societies and farming in the inundated land of the southern North Sea - Doggerland.

Post-Doctoral Researcher sedaDNA
Roselyn is post-doctoral researcher based at the University of Warwick.
During her PhD (also at the University of Warwick) she studied the role of resource partitioning in supporting the diversity of British bat species. This involved the use of archeogenetic techniques, next generation sequencing, and bioinformatics approaches to determine the bat diets.
As a member of the Allaby Lab, Roselyn has also been involved in a number of projects, including the formulation of a model for authenticating ancient DNA (aDNA), and the analysis of aDNA from Persian Gulf sediment cores.
As part of the lost frontiers project, she will be undertaking the ancient DNA analysis of the sediment cores (sedaDNA).
