Fabio Silva is currently Senior Lecturer in Archaeological Modelling at Bournemouth University, United Kingdom. His research interests focus on how humans perceive their environment (skyscape and landscape) and use that knowledge to time and adjust their social and productive behaviours. His archaeoastronomical research has mostly focused on Neolithic Portugal, though he has also done fieldwork in the United Kingdom and Malta. His books include Skyscapes: The Role and Importance of the Sky in Archaeology (co-edited with N Campion, Oxbow Books, 2015) and The Materiality of the Sky (co-edited with K Malville, T Lomsdalen and F Ventura, Sophia Centre Press, 2016).
