Archaeology

I am interested in examining the ways in which social roles shift in response to challenging environmental changes. I focus my research on Maya communities living in the Yucatán Peninsula during the Terminal Classic Period (800-925 CE). To determine significant changes in social roles, I will examine changes in diet, bone wearing, and bone breaks indicative of certain types of labor among a variety of individuals.
