Current research

The ecological richness of the Great Lakes Watershed has attracted human Populations since the late Pleistocene Epoch and is now home to more than 325,000 American and Canadian residents.  Dr. Farley and Professor Moll (instructors at Wisconsin Lutheran College) are studying the cultural Variability associated with the peopling of this region and the Biological effects of shifts in subsistence strategy.

Crania from a four culture areas including biological material from twelve archaeological sites in Wisconsin (AD 900-1600) are being compared in order to test the notion that craniofacial traits associated with a diverse environment would reflect a mixed subsistence strategy as opposed to an overreliance on plant domesticates.
