  • Introduction: Come and meet Sofia Pacheco-Fores, Bioarchaeology graduate student at Arizona State University!

              Sofía is a Bioarchaeology graduate student at Arizona State University studying ritual violence and human sacrifice in central Mexico. She uses bone chemistry and skeletal and tooth morphology to investigate where sacrificial victims were from and how they were related to other groups living in central Mexico to understand why these individuals were chosen for human sacrifice. Additionally, she is also interested in body modification practices, warfare, and migration. Prior to working in Mexico, she also worked in the Andes, as well as in Egypt. Come and meet her and learn about her fascinating field of study!

This event is included with the price of admission to the museum.
