FaunalGirl- Patricia Pillay

Archaeologist, Doctoral Candidate at the University of Auckland

Kia ora! Welcome to my domain where you can learn about my research as an archaeologist.  Here I explore the amazing heritage and important connections of archaeology in weaving together the many ways of knowing and being.


I focus on human-animal interactions, but also long-term environmental changes, which impact us today such as extinctions and climate change.
