Students identify animal bones in a zooarchaeology class at SUNY Oneonta, taught by Renee Walker, professor of anthropology. The course focuses on animal species that were used by Native Americans — students “learn about modern bones and then apply this to bones from archaeological sites,” says Walker. “They learn to recognize hunting preferences and environmental changes over time,” such as 3,000-year-old deer bones from a site in Tennessee. The newly-renovated Physical Science Building at SUNY Oneonta is used by the departments of Chemistry, Physics and Anthropology for classes, labs and faculty research.<br />
