    Mississippi Maya Week
    Katherine Miller Wolf
    Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Indiana University East

    An individual’s life history is recorded in his or her bones. This talk presents the latest discoveries in Maya archaeology from the perspective of a bioarchaeologist who ‘reads’ ancient bones. Dr. Katherine Miller Wolf’s talk “Life and Death in Mesoamerica: What do the Skeletons Tell Us?” describes the work of a bioarchaeologist in the Maya world. Dr. Miller Wolf’s recent research includes the Classic Maya cities of Copan and Ucanal and the early Colonial Mission San Bernabé. She currently teaches at Indiana University East
