The Archaeology of the Human Skeleton
Dr. Maria Ostendorf Smith, Professor of Anthropology, will present a talk entitled, “The Archaeology of the Human Skeleton” at 4:30 p.m. in the Founders Suite at the University Club. Dr. Smith specializes in
paleopathology (pre-modern patterns of disease) and has been investigating various health issues including diet, endemic disease, malnutrition, deliberate trauma in pre-Columbian human skeletal samples, dating from about ~6000 B.C.–A.D. 1540, from the Tennessee River Valley of eastern and west-central Tennessee. Please join us to learn about this fascinating perspective on early human culture.
All faculty, staff, annuitants and guests are welcome to join us at the University Club from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. this Friday in the Founders Suite in the Bone Student Center.
