Lisa Anderson - Curator of Bioarchaeology and NAGPRA Coordinator
My work focuses on the biological impact of lifestyle on past populations through the study of human skeletal remains. A unique type of collection deserving of special care and consideration, human remains are an important record of individual life histories and experiences. They are key to understanding adaptation and interaction in the past through patterns of diet, disease, demography, and genetic relationships and are of particular interest for studying topics ranging from subsistence change to migration, warfare, and the disenfranchised.
