University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa
Major: Anthropology, Biology, and Spanish
My name is Julia Sponholtz, and I’m studying Anthropology, Biology, and Spanish at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa. My research interests are mainly in bioarchaeology with a focus on diet and health, but I am excited to learn about and use many other techniques in archaeology in order to understand the MSA people more fully. So far, I have participated in field schools in Georgia and Ireland, and at my university I work in an osteology lab as well as a biocultural anthropology lab. Outside of school, I like reading, cooking, and wearing fun outfits. As I have only studied more recent peoples, I am really looking forward to the opportunity to excavate and research a site of such antiquity in this program!
