Scholarly Scoop: The Life of a Burial Archaeologist: Telling and Protecting the Lives of Those Once Lived

Friday, November 2 at 10:30 am

Starin Park Community Center


Peter E Killoran

This talk focuses on the work of a Burial Archaeologist; similar to those who do forensic anthropology. They deal with the legal and ethical aspects of what happens when burials that are historical and not of criminal interest are uncovered, usually individuals who have unmarked graves that are disturbed through construction or other types of development. The process involved in the legal and ethical treatment in the recovery and protection of these individuals and some of the new tools available to help us identify and document these people will also be covered.

Peter E Killoran, Lecturer, Depart. of Sociology, Criminology, and Anthropology.  He is an Anthropologist specializing in Forensic Science and Bio-archaeology.
