Author Biographies

Liz Henty, University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Liz Henty left her accountancy career to take the Cultural Astronomy and Astrology MA at University of Wales, Trinity Saint David, where she achieved a distinction for her dissertation entitled 'An Examination of Possible Solar, Lunar and Stellar Alignments at the Recumbent Stone Circles of North-East Scotland'. After taking some short archaeology courses at Aberdeen University, she is now a PhD Student at University of Wales, Trinity Saint David, researching the divide between the disciplines of archaeology and archaeoastronomy. She has presented papers at SEAC and the Theoretical Archaeology Group conferences and is a contributor to the forthcoming volume Skyscapes in Archaeology edited by F Silva and N Campion.

Fabio Silva, UCL Institute of Archaeology and University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Fabio Silva is currently a Research Associate at University College London's Institute of Archeology and a tutor at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, both in the United Kingdom. His current research interests focus on how humans perceive their environment (skyscape and landscape) and use that knowledge to time and adjust their social and productive behaviours. His archaeoastronomical research has mostly focused on Neolithic Portugal, though he has also done fieldwork in the United Kingdom and Malta. His books include Skyscapes: The Role and Importance of the Sky in Archaeology (co-edited with N Campion, Oxbow Books, 2015) and The Materiality of the Sky (co-edited with K Malville, T Lomsdalen and F Ventura, Sophia Centre Press, 2016). He co-founded and co-edits the Journal of Skyscape Archaeology (Equinox Publishing) and received the Fifth Carlos Jaschek Award from the European Society for Astronomy in Culture (SEAC) in 2016.
