ANDREW LAWSON - A Chaîne Opératoire Perspective on the Lithic Industries at the Iler Earthworks (AaHr-22)
This talk will detail the chaîne opératoire (operational sequence) and how its conceptual framework informs the lithic tool making and procurement practices present during the Late Woodland period at the Iler Earthworks in Essex County, Ontario.
GILLIAN SEYMOUR - Breaking Bones: Analyzing Trauma and Pathology in the Individuals from Gurat, France
My presentation is devoted to reconstructing the life ways of the Gurat individuals by creating in depth osteobiographies. These osteobiographies will contextualize the Gurat individuals and shed light on what life was like in medieval France.
HOLLY KRAUSE - 3D Technology Applied to Faunal Remains from Mingo Lake
Faunal remains from the Dorset occupation of the Mingo Lake site (LdFa-1) were analysed for cut marks. The bones which were cut were then 3D scanned to see if the missing pieces could be extracted from a 3D model. This piece would represent the blank they would use for tool manufacture.
MALLORY MOSCOVITCH - Birding, New Media, and Design: An Anthropological Investigation
The rapid expansion of new media in recent years has greatly influenced how birding is practiced. Drawing on interdisciplinary scholarship, I seek to provide an analysis of the ways that birding, new media, and design engage at the rare Charitable Research Reserve in Cambridge, Ontario, to explore questions such as: How do users generate a database of bird observations? How is the digital landscape of eBird generated? How do media ideologies influence the digital landscape of eBird?
EMILY SCHALJO - Bioarchaeology and Prehistoric Greece: Human Skeletal Remains From Klenia
This project involves the osteological analysis of the human skeletal remains recovered during a series of rescue excavations in Klenia, Corinthia, Greece. The primary aim of this research is to place these skeletal assemblages, dating to the Early Helladic and Archaic periods of Greece, within their temporal and geographical contexts, and in doing so, to contribute to the understanding of past lifeways in these early periods of Greek history.
