Alexis Jordan awarded AIA’s Elizabeth Bartman Museum Internship Scholarship

Alexis Jordan, a PhD candidate in Anthropology, will use the Bartman award to conduct archival research and commingled skeletal analyses on the remains from Harlyn Bay, the largest Iron Age cemetery in Cornwall. As part of her dissertation research, she will spend eight weeks at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Great Britain. This collection, which has never been studied in its entirety, is vital to her dissertation research, which focuses on the construction of cultural identities in the Pre-Roman and Roman Iron Ages (800 BCE-CE 400) in southwestern Britain through the analysis of mortuary ritual and human remains.
