Carrie L. Sulosky Weaver
B.A., Anthropology and Classics, summa cum laude, University of Pittsburgh, 2005
Carrie graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005. While at Pittsburgh, she completed an undergraduate honors thesis entitled The Role of Agriculture in Preceramic Peru under the supervision of Dr. James B. Richardson III. Her combined interest in physical anthropology and archaeology led her to the University of Sheffield, where received a masters of science in Human Osteology and Funerary Archaeology. At Sheffield, Carrie was supervised by Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, and her masters dissertation focused on regional variations in Romano-British cremation rites as evidenced in human cremated remains. In 2009, Carrie attained a masters of art in Classical Art and Archaeology from the University of Virginia, where, under the supervision of Dr. Tyler Jo Smith, she studied the iconography of banquet scenes on Roman cineraria. Currently, she is a PhD student at the University of Virginia, and her dissertation research will consist of the comprehensive examination of a Greek cemetery at Kamarina, Sicily (5th to 3rd century BC). Carrie has excavated at Pompeii (House of the Surgeon, 2004), Morgantina (North Baths, 2008) and Kaukana, Sicily (Building 6, 2009-2010), and she has analyzed human remains from Great Britain, Rome, Sicily and Turkey. The results of her examination of two Byzantine skeletons from Sicily have been published in the Journal of Roman Archaeology (2009) and the American Journal of Archaeology (April 2011). In 2010, Carrie was awarded the Etruscan Fieldwork Fellowship and the McIntire Department of Art Teaching Assistant Award. Her academic interests lie broadly in the history and archaeology of the ancient Mediterranean world, and specifically in funerary art and architecture, burial practices and the analysis of human bones.
