Emily Blackwood, a quaternary and climate studies master’s student, received her bachelor’s degree in anthropology from UMaine in 2015. This past summer she traveled to Peru to excavate and gather information from an archaeological site with UMaine faculty members Daniel Sandweiss, Alice Kelley and Paul “Jim” Roscoe, as well as Bangor attorney Jim Munch, and Gloria Lopez Cadavid of CENIEH (Centro Nacional de Investigación sobre la Evolución Humana). The site, known as the Ostra Collecting Station, has been dated at ~6,000 years old.
