Dalyn Grindle Awarded NSF Internship to Research Sturgeon Bones

Dalyn Grindle

Undergraduate anthropology/archaeology and environment & natural resources student Dalyn Grindle is on her way to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, this summer. She was awarded a paid research internship from the National Science Foundation to study ancient sturgeon. According to the internship synopsis:

This project focuses on the analysis of archaeological sturgeon bones (scutes and cranial elements) from two Native American village sites located on the Oregon Coast just south of the Columbia River. The intern will identify archaeological sturgeon bones from the larger fish assemblage, make morphological measurements of some of these bones, and compare these to modern sturgeon bone measurements and DNA data to understand the nature of the prehistoric Native American sturgeon fishery through time.

Congratulations, Dalyn!
