Students with background in Chinese language or who have taken ARCP291 East Asian Archaeology or ARCP350 Animals in Archaeology may participate in summer fieldwork with Professor Brunson. Professor Brunson's research examines the environmental and social aspects of past human-animal interactions in East Asia. She collaborates with zooarchaeologists across China and is part of several international teams that are investigating Neolithic and Bronze Age archaeological sites in the Yellow River Valley. She is also zooarchaeologist for the Tao River Archaeology Project and co-PI of the Oracle Bones in East Asia Project.
