Panchala Weerasinghe was awarded a Canadian Institute in Greece travel bursary for her summer 2019 research costs. Panchala is at work in the Eretria archaeological museum. She is studying Roman-era skeletons found in a well in an abandoned gymnasium in Eretria, on the island of Euboia, Greece. Prof. Maria Liston is working on infant remains from the same well while Panchala studies the adults and older children.
