Verano/Dement Summer Research Collaboration

October 22nd, 2014

Two Stone Center grants enabled a joint research exploration in Peru this past summer. John W. Verano, a professor in the department of anthropology, was able to conduct two months of field and laboratory research by way of a Stone Center Faculty Research Grant. Working alongside Professor Verano, student Brittany Dement was awarded a Stone Center summer field research grant which facilitated her travel and research as well. Their cohesive research focused on the practice of child sacrifice at the nothern coastal site of Huanchaquito-Las Llamas.
