Contact: Ari Harris


Central Michigan University anthropology faculty member Cathy Willermet has co-edited a book on Mayan history.

“Bioarcheology of Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica: An Interdisciplinary Approach” presents new research on ancient migration, ethnicity and social identity in the Maya area and Valley of Mexico.

The text combines multiple areas of study including bioarcheology, ethnohistory, mortuary archaeology and dental morphology to gain a better understanding of the factors that played into migration of the Mayan people. The book is a result of a study conducted in Honduras, Belize and Mexico that addresses migration and mobility, ethnicity, and social identity.

Along with the new book, Willermet is published in multiple journals for her work on other interdisciplinary studies, specifically on creating the CMU anthropology course ANT 250, Water as Life, Death, and Power.
