September 27, 2016
University students are taking learning — and fresh animal bones — into their own hands.
On Sept. 21, students in assistant anthropology professor Juliet Brophy’s paleoecology and taphonomy course used found rocks to break open bovine long bones outside the Howe-Russell Geoscience Complex. In the course, students study the processes that affect bones following an animal’s death, Brophy said.
