Program Description

Description

Were you a fan of the television series "Bones" or Kathy Reichs' book series that inspired it? Then you are familiar with what our speaker, Dr. Christine E. Boston, assistant professor of anthropology and sociology at LU, is going to cover. Boston previously worked on a number of bioarchaeological projects throughout North and South America, and she has also assisted law enforcement in forensic anthropological investigations in London, Ontario, Canada. She will bring her experience and knowledge to this presentation as she describes how the human skeleton can be analyzed to assess various identity markers and used to track health and cultural practices.
