New Chapter Out from Watson

May 27, 2022

Dr. James Watson, Professor of Anthropology and ASM Curator of Bioarchaeology, has co-authored a chapter in The Routledge Handbook of Mesoamerican Bioarchaeology (first edition). This volume brings together a range of contributors with different and hybrid academic backgrounds to explore, through bioarchaeology, the past human experience in the territories that span Mesoamerica. Dr. Watson’s contribution to this scholarly volume, with Mexican colleague Patricia Olga Hernández Espinoza, “North of Mesoamerica: Bioarchaeology of the Northwest, North-Central, and Northeast”, describes the poorly understood bioarchaeology across northern Mexico at the periphery of the Mesoamerica world.
