I enjoy giving talks to a general, public audience and have done this numerous times over the last decade for local and national archaeological societies, anthropology clubs, high school Latin clubs, university departments, and rotary clubs.


April 2, 2019 (7:30pm) — Reading Past Lives: How Archaeologists Understand the Stories Written in Bone. Woods Lecture Series, Butler University, Atherton Union, Reilly Room.

May/June, 2019 — Rutgers University. More details to come.
