Anthropology student presents research at 39th annual Flint Hills Archaeological Conference
Jakob Hanschu, junior in anthropology and geography, recently presented his independent research "Spatial Patterning of Prehistoric Burial Mounds in Northeastern Kansas" at the 39th annual Flint Hills Archaeological Conference in Arkansas City, Kansas, March 23-25. His research and travel to the conference is supported by K-State's College of Arts and Sciences as an Undergraduate Research Award and a Research Travel Award.
Other K-State presenters were Lauren W. Ritterbush, associate professor of archaeology, along with Hanschu and Brad Logan, research associate professor. Their research, "Archaeological Evaluation of a Prehistoric Mound in Riley County, Kansas," is based on initial data recovery completed as part of the Kansas Archaeological Field School, which provided field training in archaeology for a dozen K-State anthropology students in June 2016.
