The San Juan Basin Archaeological Society invites the public to a presentation at 7 p.m. Wednesday on Zoom.
After a brief business meeting, professor Kathryn Baustian will present “Violence and Conflict in the American Southwest: A Biocultural Perspective of Mimbres and Mogollon Communities.”
Baustian is a teaching professor in the Department of Anthropology at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. As a bioarchaeologist, she has researched patterns of violence and health among ancient Mimbres and Mogollon populations from New Mexico and Arizona. She also has experience investigating child and infant health at a 4,000 year old Bronze Age site in the United Arab Emirates. Her current research assesses evidence of genetic relatedness between Mimbres communities through dental markers. She is also working to document the variation in mortuary patterns throughout the Mimbres chronology and region.
This talk will be recorded.
