Published: July 14, 2022

For four weeks, graduate students from CU Denver will be analyzing faunal material from the Arma Veirana caves site in Italy, blogging about the experience, and posting videos to YouTube. The group is led by Anthropology Associate Professor Jamie Hodgkins and Associate Professor in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology (Affiliated Anthropology Faculty) Caley Orr. The students, Kyle Pontieri, Sarah Manassee, Ari Del Olmo Medina, Caitlin Konchan, and Lia Plankenhorn-Farrell, are beyond excited for the incredible opportunity to work in the field and expand their knowledge base and skills in zooarchaeology and anthropological lab work. Alongside their formal duties, they will also have the opportunity to visit local museums and immerse themselves in the local culture and landscape.
