Archeological field technicians excavate during the final phase of the Rupple Road Street Extension project. In addition to material artifacts archeologists must be vigilant for potential human remains.

The Graduate Research Series in Anthropology will be hosting Jessica Mathis, a second-year master's candidate in the biological anthropology program here at the U of A. She will present a lecture on bioarcheological applications in cultural resource management. 

The lecture will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, in Discovery Hall 505.

Mathis has spent the past five years developing a career in cultural resource management involving fieldwork in archeological survey, mitigation, and monitoring projects. Mathis' work includes aiding in the discovery and protection of prehistoric and historic archeological sites of the United States of America, and involves collaboration with branches of infrastructure and Native American tribes. 

Her research foci centers on bioarcheology and the identification, reconstruction, and repatriation of human burials and remains. Rather than focusing on material artifacts, bioarcheology studies organic artifacts such as faunal and human remains. If you are interested in learning about bioarcheology, Cultural Resource Management, its potential as a career path, and fascinating projects that have undergone archeological mitigation, come join us!
