Congratulations to our majors Jacob Euster, Catherine Fain, and Helen Pearson on their newly published articles in The Classic Journal 3.1 – Bioarchaeology Special Issue.

All three essays are part of a special issue that blends bioarchaeology, cultural anthropology, and history. Jacob's paper examines the skeletal remains of interred enslaved peoples to analyze the tensions between slavery and changing ideas of democracy. Katherine looks at strontium isotope levels, burial arrangements, and skeletal remains in sites of internment and human sacrifice in the Andes, to find evidence of "insider" and "outsider" cultural identities. And Helen's piece takes a humanistic perspective to identify indigenous resistance against colonial suppressors.
