Darwin College is delighted to announce that Vice-Master Professor Martin Jones has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy in recognition of his work in the field of archaeobotany. Professor Jones is one of six Cambridge academics elected as Fellows of the British Academy in 2018.
Professor Jones is the George Pitt-Rivers Professor of Archaeological Science in Cambridge, and his work covers bio-archaeology and early agriculture, including the spread of crops across the ancient world. Commenting on his election, Professor Jones said: "It is a real privilege to join the Academy at a time when the humanities and social sciences have more to offer society than ever before."
Martin joins a number of other Fellows and Honorary Fellows of Darwin College who are also Fellows of the British Academy: Geoffrey Lloyd (Ancient Philosophy & Science, former Master), Karalyn Patterson (Neuroscience), and Amartya Sen (Economics & Philosophy, Honorary Fellow).
