In the Osteology Lab

No Comment

Bioarchaeologist Tiffiny Tung examines mummies and skeletons from archaeological contexts from the Peruvian Andes. Students in her Anthropology 270: Human Osteology course learn to identify bones and reassemble skeletons. The course involves time in the Osteology lab in Garland, which also houses skeletons from a variety of animals. Here, she quizzes students to see what they recall from class.
