Anthropology faculty and students present at Kansas Anthropological Association annual meeting
Two K-State archaeology faculty and two undergraduate anthropology students were invited to present their research at the 2018 annual meeting of the Kansas Anthropological Association on April 28 in Manhattan.
Brad Logan, research associate professor, presented "The Quixote Site: A Progress Report on the Excavation of a Late Woodland Habitation in the Delaware River Drainage." As principal investigator of the 2017 Kansas Archaeological Training Program, or KATP, a joint endeavor of the Kansas Anthropological Association and the Kansas Historical Society, Logan directed the initial data recovery from this site and is continuing analysis and interpretation through 2018.
Other K-State researchers also participated with the 2018 Kansas Anthropological Association annual meeting.
Lauren W. Ritterbush, professor of archaeology, and Jakob Hanschu, undergraduate anthropology major, summarized research initiated through the 2016 K-State summer archaeological field school in their coauthored presentation "Burial Mound Investigation and Preservation in Manhattan, Kansas." Hanschu and fellow K-State anthropology major Kaylee Kerns summarized their independent undergraduate research, "New Depths: Understanding Archaeology's Role in the Context of the KATP."
