Elizabeth Lynch is an anthropological archaeologist interested in how landscapes become socialized through human interaction, thus anchoring social reproduction processes within an intelligible context. Her research combines oral tradition, with morphometric analysis and 3D modeling to better understand social experience at intensive food processing localities called bedrock ground stone features. Her project area is in the Chacuaco Plateau of southeastern Colorado, USA, although she has worked with photogrammetry and 3D modeling on osteological projects, and at Hell Gap.
