Tim Denham

Tim Denham undertook multidisciplinary investigations of early plant exploitation and cultivation at Kuk Swamp for his PhD research at ANU from 1997 to 2004. In particular, he introduced to the project recent advances in archaeobotany, allowing the identification of basic food crops of the New Guinea/Pacific region like yams, taro and bananas. He was also an advocate of more integrated site sampling procedures.
