Congratulations to Laura Shuttleworth, Master’s student at University of Saskatchewan, for successfully defending her MA thesis on April 3rd (remotely, of course)!

Laura was co-supervised by Dr. Angela Lieverse and Dr. Hugh McKenzie.

Title: “Analysis of Mortuary Variability, Diet, and Area-of-Birth at the Early Bronze Age Cemetery of Khuzhir-Nuge XIV, Cis-Baikal, Siberia”

Her project was part of the Dr. McKenzie’s Small Cemetery Project, funded by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant (Dr. Hugh McKenzie was PI, Dr. Alexei Novikov and Dr. Angela Lieverse were co-investigators).

Here’s a great photo of Laura taken on Ol’khon Island on Lake Baikal.

Way to go, Laura! We wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
