Izzy Wisher
Department of Archaeology, Durham University
Izzy Wisher is a PhD student at the Department of Archaeology, Durham University. Her research specialises in understanding the psychological foundations of animal depictions in Upper Palaeolithic cave art, focusing on cave art sites in northern Spain. She is particularly interested in the sensory effects of cave environments on the visual system, and uses 3D modelling and Virtual Reality to reconstruct how Upper Palaeolithic people would have made and viewed this art under a warm, flickering light cast from the small flame of their torches. Her interests also include experimental archaeology, to test hypotheses about how art was made and used in the Upper Palaeolithic and the different technologies related to this behaviour. She is passionate about science communication, and has published several articles that aim to articulate the human narratives that lie behind Palaeolithic visual and material culture.
