Personal profile


Ingrid Ward is a well-recognised geoarchaeologist on both terrestrial and marine archaeological landscapes, authoring a number of concept papers arguing for a multidisciplinary, geoarchaeological approach to investigating submerged landscapes in both Europe and NW Australia.

In 2014, she joined the ARC-funded Barrow Island Archaeology Project, leading geoarchaeological and micromorphological research on this continental shelf edge site. In 2017 she started a post-doctoral position with the Deep History of Sea Country project, the first ARC-funded project on submerged prehistoric landscapes in Australia.

In 2018, Ingrid started on a DECRA-funded research project focused on understanding of the sedimentary landscapes and environmental context in which archaeological remains are preserved at both the macro- and micro-scale. Disentangling natural and cultural factors at these different scales is viewed as crucial to understanding the complexity of human-landscape dynamics, and the pattern of archaeological preservation in Australia.
