Forensic Anthropology

I was lucky to have been able to attend a lecture at Saint Mary’s University, one of my old stomping grounds, Tuesday evening.  Dr Douglas Owlsy is a famous forensic anthropologist from the Smithsonian institute.  He has worked on a number of high profile Cases, Jeffery Dalmer, 9-11, and I recognize him from Forensic Files.  I was on the edge of my seat the whole time he spoke of his latest project involving the remains found in the Cheasapeake bay area.  Namely Jamestown and Saint Mary’s.  It was a hard life for those colonists and the hardships were apparent in the bones they left behind.  It was fascinating.image image image

I stayed until after question period.  I have now joined as a life-time member of the NS Archeaology society.  Their upcoming monthly talks sounds super interesting to this Archeaology nerd;)
