Rebecca Crozier gained her undergraduate degree from the University of Edinburgh in 1998, going on to study for the MSc in Osteology, Palaeopathology and Funerary Archaeology in Sheffield/Bradford (awarded in 1999). She then spent several years working as a contract archaeologist for various units in the UK, including the Museum of London Archaeology Service (now MOLA). Rebecca was awarded her PhD in 2012 by Queen’s University Belfast; this work combined Rebecca’s fascination with mortuary practices and human remains, ultimately reconstructing past funerary events associated with the Neolithic tombs in Orkney. Following her PhD, she moved to Manila, Philippines, to take up a lecturing position at the University of the Philippines-Archaeology Studies Program. During the next five years, Rebecca established and developed both the human osteology laboratory and programme within the department. During this time she also developed new research projects, and engaged in and directed several research excavations (within the Philippines and Vietnam). Since 2017, Rebecca has acted as a consultant (pro bono) for the Unrecovered War Casualties Unit-Army (Australian Department of Defence) in which capacity she has searched for, recovered and identified defence force personnel from WW2 in Papua New Guinea and from WWI in France [https://www.army.gov.au/our-work/unrecovered-war-casualties].

In January 2018, Rebecca was appointed as a lecturer in the Department of Archaeology, University of Aberdeen where she is the programme co-ordinator for the new MSc in Human Osteoarchaeology.
