In Detail

Having initially trained as a doctor, Alice left surgery to become a university academic, teaching clinical anatomy to students and doctors. She has enjoyed a phenomenal broadcast career spanning two decades. She has presented more than 100 factual television documentaries and is a well-respected authority on human biology, history, and archaeology. Busier than ever, in 2023 Alice presented Ancient Egypt by Train and Fortress Britain for Channel 4; The Lost Scrolls of Vesuvius for Channel 5; and Curse of the Ancients and Royal Autopsy for Sky History. She's also filmed the eleventh series of her hugely popular BBC series Digging for Britain.

In 2020, she was awarded the Royal Society's first David Attenborough Prize for Public Engagement.


Known for her commitment to science communication, Alice has actively promoted the importance of making science accessible to everyone. Presenting exciting archaeology programmes and discovering links between the past and the present, Alice's remarkable contributions in exploring evolution, disease, and the intricacies of life are groundbreaking.
