AIA Lecture: Dr. Erin Baxter discusses Archaeology & Demography of Local Cemeteries
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 7:00 pm MST Via Zoom
Just in time for Halloween, this lively talk will explore the origins, art, history, demographics and archaeology of Colorado cemeteries and share findings of CU-Boulder student-led research at Boulder’s Columbia Cemetery. The history of funerary grounds, tombstones, graveyards, mausoleums, and other post-colonial burial practices will be explored, as will the origins of death practices themselves.
Erin Baxter is Acting Curator of Anthropology at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and a popular professor of CU’s Archaeology of Death (CLAS 3119), a fascinating insight into human history and culture in both the modern and ancient world. Erin earned her Ph.D. in Anthropology and a certificate in Museum Studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
The lecture is free and will be hosted on Zoom. The link to the lecture will be sent to your email on October 27.
