Prof. Lawrence (Larry) Conyers is a leading world GPR expert He is a professor at the University of Denver (Department of Anthropology) who has been the principal investigator of projects in Australia and around the world, and recently headed the Mapoon Mission Cemetery in northern Queensland using GPR, magnetics, low altitude photos and GIS mapping.

Prof. Conyers is also the author of multiple books on GPR with the most recent publications being: 2013. Ground Penetrating Radar for Archaeology 3rd Edition (Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, Alta Mira Press, Latham, Maryland); and 2012. Interpreting Ground Penetrating Radar for Archaeology (Left Coast Press, Walnut Creek, Califormia). Prof. Conyers is also well published in reputable archaeological, geophysical and engineering, and geo-archaeological journals and editorials.

Dr Nigel Spooner has a PhD in the development of Luminescence dating methods and has decades of experience, being recognised as a world leader in the refinement and application of these techniques. Dr Spooner established the Luminescence Dating Laboratory at the ANU during the 1990s and is now Adjunct Professor at Adelaide University where he heads the Environmental Luminescence Group.

He is widely published with dozens of academic articles and frequently garners media attention for his work. Dr Spooner is an expert in Single-grain OSL dating and has worked on numerous archaeological projects, providing accurate dates for sites in Australia (and elsewhere), and is particularly versed in the dating of Pleistocene aged sand sheet sites.

Dr Gilbert Price (Palaeontologist) Gilbert is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in palaeontology at The University of Queensland. He obtained his Ph.D. in Palaeoecology from Queensland University of Technology in 2006 and his projects have spanned a wide breadth of distinctive research fields that include palaeoecology, geochronology, zoology and modern conservation.

Dr Gilbert Price is an expert in the field of both extinct and extant Australian faunal identification and he is especially focused on developing key datasets with which to test hypotheses concerning the extinction of Australia’s Pleistocene megafauna.;
