"Human Osteology" Researchers:

Fall 1996:  Pictured left  (l-r):  Erin McClusky, Rebeccah Sanders, Anthony Schafer, Cynthia Ryan, James Boyle.

James Boyle (BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1997;  currently in the Anthropology program at New York University).   Jim conducted research on dental defects known as enamel hypoplasias as part of the Fall 1996 "Human Osteology" class.

Erin McClusky(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1997)   Erin studied the biomechanics of kneeling.

Cynthia Ryan(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1997)  Cynthia studied the biomechanics of kneeling.

Rebeccah Sanders  (BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1997; Fulbright Fellow, 1997-98; currently a graduate student in Environmental Studies at the University of Georgia).  Rebeccah studied dental defects, which shecontinued for "Directed Research", and subsequently traveled to Jerusalem for two summers.  She received funding from Notre Dame's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, and later a Fulbright Fellowship for 1998-99.

Anthony Schafer  (BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1997; currently in Law School at the University of Illinois).  Tony studied the biomechanics of kneeling, and subsequently traveled to Jerusalem and helped exhume and process the remains, and prepare samples for chemical analysis.

Fall 1998:  Pictured left  (l-r):  H Martin, J Benn, J Ramp, J DeLaruelle, B Berkowitz, K Kowalski, J Freese, W Brennan, & LVoiter

Jada Benn (BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1999;  currently in the Anthropology graduate program at the University of New Mexico, Albequerque, NM).  Jada studied cortical bone maintenance related to bending strength and activity patterns.  She is currently a graduate student in physical anthropology at the University of New Mexico, Albequerque.  jadab2@hotmail.com

Benjamin Berkowitz(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1999).   Ben studied adult age indicators in the skull and postcranial skeleton.

William Brennan(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1999;  currently attending Dental School).  Bill  studyied the biomechanics of kneeling.  He continued in the Spring 1999 in "Directed Research" on a joint analysis of non-metric dental traits.  He traveled to Jerusalem in the Summer 1999 to further this research.  He received funding from Notre Dame's Undergraduate Research Opportunites Program.

Jocellyn DeLaurelle  (BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1999).   Jocellyn studied age indicators throughout the skeleton for a project , and continued to work for the project in the summer 1999 in the project library at Notre Dame.

Jessica Freese  (BA, Biological Sciences, University of Notre Dame, 1999; currently working for the ACE program teaching in Appalachia).   Jessica conducted research on cortical bone maintenance in analysis of activity patterns.

Katherine Kowalski  (BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1999;  currently on a service project in South America).  Katie studied suffering, as portrayed in the historical texts, and explored medial remedies that might have been available during the Byzantine period.

Heather Martin (BA, Philosophy, University of Notre Dame, 1999).   Heather conducted fluoride analysis on a subsample of ribs to determine degree of heterogeneity for relative dating.

Jerremy Ramp(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1999; currently working for Augusta Vicotoria Hospital and the Union of Palestinian Relief Commitees in Jerusalem).   Jerremy studied the biomechanics of kneeling.  He continued with the project during the summer 1999 collecting data on non-metric postcranial traits, in Jerusalem.  He will continue with the project during the 1999-2000 academic year, while working in Jerusalem.

Lauren Voiter  (BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 1999).  Lauren also conducted fluoride analysis on the St. Stephen's ribs for a relative dating of the materials.

Fall 1999:

Marie Cable(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 2001).  Marie analyzed burial practices in Byzantine Palestine, in a survey of tomb typology and burial practices.    cable.1@nd.edu

Kerry DesMaris(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 2000).  Kerry studied the non-metric cranial traits of the St. Stephen's collection, as part of an overall study of pilgrimage.   desmarais.1@nd.edu

Megan Glah(BA, Science Pre-Professional, University of Notre Dame, 2001).  Megan studied methods of childhood age determinatiion to help assess the age structure of the subadult portion of the St. Stephen's collection.  glah.1@nd.edu

Dennis Haraszko(BA, Anthropology, University of Notre Dame, 2000).  Dennis studied non-metric traits of the postcranial skeleton as a mechanism to understand the degree of relatedness of this community.  This question has direct bearing on the phenomenon of pilgrimage, which according to the historical texts, was prevalent in Byzantine Jerusalem.   haraszko.1@nd.edu
