Tracy Betsinger publishes article

Tracy Betsinger, Anthropology, has recently published an article entitled “Deviant Burials and Social Identity in a Post-medieval Polish Cemetery: An analysis of Stable Oxygen and Carbon Isotopes from the ‘Vampires’ of Drawsko.” The article is on Early View in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. The study examined stable isotopes to determine whether the atypical burials represented non-local individuals. The results indicated, however, that the deviant ‘vampire’ burials were locals, confirming the results of an earlier study.
