The East Tennessee Society of the Archaeological Institute of America and UT's McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture will continue their annual lecture series Thursday, January 16.
The first lecture will feature UT professor Dawnie Steadman, a skeletal biologist who specializes in forensic anthropology, bioarchaeology, and human rights investigations. Steadman will talk about the research on mass grave exhumations being conducted by UT's Forensic Anthropology Center.
Steadman, the director of the center, leads a research project there-the first of its kind-that uses various technologies to detect mass graves.
The 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. event will be in the McClung Museum's auditorium.
The lecture series invites scholars from around the world to present the latest archaeological discoveries. It is free and open to the public.
After 4:00 p.m. parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis on Circle Park Drive. Additional parking information is available online.
