Dr Bryan Lintott

I specialise in cultural heritage in extreme environments, and polar and aerospace history, focussing on international governance at the interface between academia and advocacy. Related to this is integrating science, technology, archaeology, history, and heritage studies to produce excellent research with minimal environmental impact. My professional skills range from academic research to cultural heritage governance, management, conservation and interpretation.
