Dr Coralie M Mills BSc MA PhD FSA Scot MCIfA
Coralie is a dendrochronologist and woodland heritage specialist who has worked in Scotland since 1988 after attaining her PhD in dendrochronology at the University of Sheffield. Her interests lie in our ‘biocultural heritage’, at the interface between trees, timbers, landscapes, people and the past, especially in Scotland. Since setting up her consultancy ‘Dendrochronicle’ in 2009, based in Edinburgh, Coralie has been undertaking related projects all over Scotland. Prior to that she was Executive Director at AOC Archaeology Group. Coralie is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews and was recently a Post-Doctoral Fellow on the NERC-funded ‘SCOT2K’ native pine dendrochronology project, pioneering the dating of Scottish pine buildings, mostly in the Highlands. She is currently expanding SE Scotland's native oak dendrochronology record through a three-year archaeology research grant from Historic Environment Scotland, using samples from old living trees and timbers from historic buildings and archaeological sites over the last millennium. Coralie is an Honorary Fellow of Scottish Environment LINK, which advocates for the environment in Scotland, where she serves on the Woodlands Group, and she is also an active committee member of the Native Woodlands Discussion Group. She is a longstanding Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeology and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. She is also a member of the Royal Scottish Forestry Society and the Association for Environmental Archaeology.
