Intramural Burial in the Roman Suburbs
Dr. Killgrove has been working at the Roman site of Gabii since 2010 as the staff bioarchaeologist. The project is directed by Dr. Nicola Terrenato at the University of Michigan and seeks to learn about the development and collapse of this urban area just 20 km east of Rome. Dr. Killgrove's research involves an osteological and biochemical analysis of the burials with the goal of answering questions about health, lifestyle, diet, and status.
Medieval Population and Space: Interdisciplinary Research into the Origin of Berlin's First Population
Dr. Killgrove is undertaking isotope analyses of skeletons discovered at Petriplatz, a Medieval cemetery associated with the founding of modern Berlin, Germany, in the early 13th century. This project is led by German archaeologist Claudia Melisch. In Fall 2015, Dr. Killgrove received a Florida Research Fellowship from UWF for further analysis.
