I am a biological anthropologist, and I am interested in understanding what life was like for people who lived in the ancient Mediterranean world. I do this by collecting evidence from human skeletons and integrating this evidence with archaeological and historical information.
My cultural anthropology work in Japan and Korea has built my love of visually recording and presenting research. Museums and public outreach education methods and examples comprise my work. Some work is at gpwitteveen.googlepages.com/fulbright2012
