To mark Neurodiversity Celebration Week 2022, the Department of Archaeology at Durham University hosted a panel discussion of archaeologists, students and professionals, who have either been diagnosed or are in assessment for various neurological conditions, such as autism, ADHD, dyscalculia and dyslexia.
It is with enormous sadness that we share the news that one of our alumni has recently died in exceptionally unexpected and tragic circumstances.
