Congratulations to Dr Rupert Till on his award of an AHRC grant for his project ‘Songs of the Caves: acoustics and prehistoric art in Cantabrian caves’ (£100,000, Feb-Dec 2013). This will involve the study of the Altimira prehistoric cave system world heritage site, looking at the relationships of acoustics and paintings, making in-situ recordings of reconstructions of prehistoric instruments and taking acoustic measurements. Dr Till leads the project in collaboration with members of the archaeology department at Durham University and researchers from Cantabria, Valladolid and Zaragoza Universities, as well as the Cantabrian Regional government.
