Speaker: Professor Andrzej Weber, Department of Anthropology, University of Alberta

Dr. Weber is the director of the Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project, an international multidisciplinary team of scholars focusing on the bio-archaeology of individual life histories to understand hunter-gatherer cultural, biological and ecological interactions, as well as evolutionary trajectories in Northeast Asia. His research interests include archaeology of individual life histories; carbon, nitrogen, and strontium isotope analyses; mobility and migrations; diet; subsistence; population size and distribution; and mechanisms of cultural transmission. His archaeological fieldwork has been featured in the documentary The Code Breakers (2011), as well as in Canadian and international TV and printed media.
