Dr. Daniel Temple is currently an Associate Professor at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. His research interests include bioarchaeology; skeletal and dental biology; developmental stress; the biological and cultural aspects of growth and development; resilience theory, adaptive cycling, and persistent landscapes; memory and ontology; and hunter-gatherer mortuary practices. Dr. Temple has worked with hunter-gatherer mortuary remains from Japan, Alaska, Siberia, and Florida. His contribution to the Baikal Archaeology Project includes assessment of growth in non-surviving pre-adults, body size comparisons, estimations of age-at-death, and the use of histological methods to reconstruct early life stress experiences.
