Originally aired 1 June 2018 on bullsradio.org

Our guest this week, Heidi Miller, will discuss the process work in bioarchaeology.

Heidi Miller is a PhD student in the Applied Anthropology program at the University of South Florida with a focus on bioarchaeology. Heidi’s main interests lie in the identity and health of enslaved individuals in the Caribbean. She is especially interested in the ways in which enslaved individuals retained their identity and/or created a new identity after forced migration to the islands of the Caribbean, and the ways in which this can be seen in the bioarchaeological record. In addition, Heidi works in the Zooarchaeology and Historic Archaeology Laboratory and is President of the Graduate Student Organization. Outside of the university, Heidi works as a CRM archaeologist and has conducted excavations in seven states, with the majority of her work occurring in North Dakota.

Previously, Heidi earned her MSc from the University of Indianapolis with a thesis focused on the use of cranial measurements to identify individuals of French ancestry and its application to unknown individuals from the historic period. She earned her BA from Ohio University with a major in Anthropology.
