This semester I completed my Lumen research. I wrote a 98 page Honors Fellows Thesis about my findings and defended my thesis to my committee. I also presented my research at NCUR in Ogden, Utah and as a part of Elon’s SURF week. I presented as part of the Anthropology Senior Seminar poster session and oral presentation session as well. I was about to attend the Society of American Archaeology Conference in Memphis, Tennessee.
