Biography

Amy Roberts is an archaeologist and anthropologist who primarily works with Indigenous communities in South Australia. In particular she continues her collaborations with the Narungga people of Yorke Peninsula and Aboriginal people from the Mid Murray and Riverland regions. Her research with these communities covers a range of areas which reflects her long-term engagement with these groups. In recent years she has focused on the rock art of the Mid Murray, the ways in which Narungga people have and continue to engage with their seascape and the pre and post-contact archaeology of the Riverland. Prior to her appointment as an academic in the Archaeology Department Amy worked as an ‘expert’ for a number of native title cases – including for the First Peoples of the River Murray and Mallee Region which achieved a successful determination. She continues to work in a consulting capacity on native title and Aboriginal heritage matters.

Amy also continues her archaeological science research. She recently published results of an investigation into changes in diet over time in humans from the Arica region in Northern Chile through a stable carbon and nitrogen isotope analysis of bone collagen and is now working with co-investigators on a ceramics study (via NAA) from the same region.

Her other research interests include:

  • Archaeology and Anthropology of Indigenous Australia
  • Yorke Peninsula Archaeology and Anthropology
  • River Murray and Mallee Archaeology and Anthropology
