Welcome to Bones, Stones, and Books! My name is Steph Halmhofer and I’m a bioarchaeologist – an archaeologist with special skills in the excavation and analysis of human skeletal remains.
On my website you’ll find a variety of blog posts. Some are designed to offer advice to students interested in pursuing archaeology/bioarchaeology as a career. Others are designed to offer resourceful information for students and early career archaeologists. And some provide an honest look at what it’s really like to be an archaeologist – the good, the bad, and the ugly of it. Many of them were written from my own perspective as a graduate student (I graduated with my MA from the University of Toronto in 2017), while others were written from my perspective as a professional bioarchaeologist, both pre and post grad schools.
Now that you’ve had a brief introduction to my website, have fun taking a look around! And if at the end you find yourself with questions or comments? Feel free to contact me!
