Nerissa Russell

Nerissa Russell is an archaeologist from Cornell University and, along with Louise Martin, is Co-Director of the team that studies the faunal (animal) remains at Çatalhöyük. Besides the usual study of the fragmented bone remains of animals used for food, Nerissa studies tools and ornaments made from animal bones, including points (awls), needles, rings and pendants.

All staff profiles were compiled in 1998 and may not be current today. We hope to give you a glimpse at some of the people who work and have worked at Çatalhöyük but for more up to date information about the current Çatalhöyük team visit the University of Cambridge Çatalhöyük website
