The Upper Paleolithic burials from the Russian cite of Sunghir are some of the most archaeologically elaborate graves known from this time period.  While the material remains from Sunghir are well-known, less attention has been paid to the analysis of the human remains themselves.  Dr. Trinkaus' talk will focus on synthesizing both archaeological and biological approaches in the analysis of these important remains, while situating them within the broader context of other Upper Paleolithic burials.   3:00pm


The Chancellor’s Distinguished Visitors Program brings prominent scholars to the University of Missouri campus to participate in academic programs and research and spend time engaging the campus community.

While on campus, visitors typically deliver public lectures, host seminars, attend symposiums, meet with students studying within their respective fields and visit with faculty

Launched in 2008, the program has supported visits by more than 80 scholars.
