Guillermo Díaz de Liaño

After studying a BA in Archaeology at Complutense University (Madrid, Spain), I was left intrigued by how human identity and emotions are culturally constructed. This drove me to London, where I studied a BSc in Psychological and Psychiatric Anthropology (2016). With this mixed background, I came to Scotland in 2017 for a PhD at the University of Edinburgh, with a Fellowship from La Caixa Foundation. For my PhD, I study the notion of personhood during Late Prehistory in the Southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, mainly through the analysis of funerary evidence. I came into contact with SRUK through Spanish friends in the UK (thanks, David!), and after attending a couple of activities with the Scottish Delegation, I decided to join after seeing the amazing work that they do bringing science and research out of the classroom.
