Dr. Nesta Anderson is a PaleoWest Foundation 2020 Research Grant Award Winner
May 20, 2020
Congratulations to PaleoWest’s Dr. Nesta Anderson, Office Principal for PaleoWest’s Austin, Texas office for winning one of two research grants awarded by the PaleoWest Foundation in 2020 (www.paleowestfoundation.org).
The subjects of her research project, entitled “First Street Cemetery Infant Bioarchaeological Analysis,” are the remains of 31 infants recovered from the historic First Street Cemetery in Waco, Texas. The cemetery was established in 1852 and many graves were unmarked. This analysis will allow her to discuss the infants as a group and part of a larger population that would provide insights for the members of the Waco community who were interred there in the 1800s.
