Originally from Tennessee, Ginny Lucas came to UAB to pursue her Master’s Degree with an emphasis in zooarchaeology. In addition to zooarchaeology, her research interests include bioarchaeology and forensic anthropology. While at UAB she examined and analyzed faunal remains from three sites in Brevard County, Florida, and used this analysis to determine which of these sites was the main occupation site and the seasonality of the site. Her thesis work was mentored by Dr. Merritt, but she also conducted projects with Dr. Kyle, Dr. Parcak, and Dr. Downs.
