Hi there, I’m Rosemary Mayne, but everyone calls me Rosie – I solely run All Things AAFS!
I’m a 23 year old recent graduate from Bournemouth, where I obtained a 2:1 BSc (Hons) degree in Archaeological, Anthropological and Forensic sciences (AAFS) at Bournemouth University in 2013.
After finishing my degree I decided to create a way to share my AAFS knowledge with others who share a passion for uncovering the past. I especially enjoy writing my Quick Tips posts, which are used by fellow students to get to grips with an archaeological technique but in a student friendly way. My website also ensures that I stay up to date with all things AAFS and related to my degree.
My degree blossomed my love for learning about anything to do with these sciences, and this website allows me to be involved in these disciplines.
I selected my units around specialising in anthropology – focusing on primate behavioural ecology and applied anthropology in my final year – as well as having choosing an anthropological topic for my dissertation.
So be warned… you may get an abundance of anthropology posts on my site, but I do dabble in palaeontology from time to time – as my environmental archaeology and palaeoecology unit lead to me developing an interest these subject areas.
You can learn more about my undergraduate studies, in particular my dissertation topic, by visiting the ‘About My Dissertation‘ tab at the top.

I’ve recently branched out into selling my own unique, hand crafted archaeology and anthropology tool kits which are the perfect companions for your 4inch archaeology trowel!
If you’re a student specialising in anthropology I have created a skeletal/delicate materials friendly kit which will give you accurate digging without posing a threat to your fragile remains, or if you’re into pure archaeology we have a small finds tool kit that has all the stainless steel tools that you need to unearth the past!
You can view all the tool kits and rolls on our Etsy store; All Things AAFS! on Etsy.
