Keitlyn Alcantara, a fourth-year Ph.D. student embarking on her dissertation research, has won a Fulbright to support bioarchaeological research in Mexico next fall. She’ll divide her time between a site in the central Mexican state of Tlaxcala and the Museo Nacional in Mexico City. In Tlaxcala, she’ll study the skeletal remains from a culture that, though entirely surrounded by the Aztec empire, remained unconquered until the Spanish arrived. Then she will compare her findings to the Museo Nacional’s collection of skeletal remains from the same period found elsewhere. Studying these skeletons will illuminate how centuries of resistance and political isolation affected the community’s health, diet and trade. https://news.vanderbilt.edu/2016/05/25/anthropology-celebrates-a-year-of-big-wins-for-grad-students/
