Dead Men Tell No Tales?

Scientists can tell a lot about how people have lived from their skeletons! Dr. Kathryn Reusch will talk about what some health conditions look like, why only some conditions show up in the skeleton, and why it's important that we study health in past populations. Note: This talk will feature images of human remains and people with infectious diseases.

A Life in Ruins Podcast

The Anthropology of Castration: Listen here

In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Kathryn Reusch, who is a Conservation Technician in the Museum Conservation Department at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. We talk about her experiences in school in the UK, her graduate research, and then we take a deep dive into the painful topic of castration (and yes we mean human castration). Connor and Carlton pepper Dr. Reusch with questions about castration and learn more than they ever needed to know.
