My Biography

Pamela Willoughby (BA Anthropology, Honours, Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, 1974; MA Anthropology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, 1976; PhD Anthropology, UCLA, Los Angeles, 1985) is an expert in Palaeolithic archaeology and Palaeoanthropology. She is interested in the biocultural evolution of humans. Pamela directs an archaeological field project in the Iringa Region of southern Tanzania. It focuses on the Middle Stone Age and the origins of modern humans. But, due to the interests of her graduate students, as well as with local Iringa communities, they have carried out research on every period of human history from the Acheulean to the late 19th century. Pamela was a volunteer at her first AAA Annual meeting in 1972 in Toronto.
