Ancient Agriculture to Criminal Investigations: Paleoethnobotany in Practice (Fall 2019)

We explore the major classes of plant remains likely to be encountered in forensic cases and archaeological sites; identify botanical residues and organize the data to make interpretable results; and address major issues within the discipline including preservation, analytical methods, sampling, collection, and interpretation.
