The San Diego Museum of Man will sponsor a series of fascinating public lectures relating to the topic of our new exhibit, Strange Bones: Curiosities of the Human Skeleton. Lectures are scheduled to be held inside the Irving J. Gill Auditorium at the Museum’s administrative building (located just west of the main Museum building) at 11:00 a.m. FREE with general admission.
Speaker: Elizabeth Miller, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, CSU Los Angeles and the Department of the Coroner, County of Los Angeles
Join Dr. Miller for a fascinating discussion about her work as a forensic anthropologist and learn how skeletal remains offer clues to nutritional deficiencies, disease, instances of trauma, and potentially the identity of the individual.
