CRC Anthropology - Dr. Jelmer Eerkens
9:00 am to 10:20 am
Recital Hall

Dr. Jelmer Eerkens will speak about a unique case of a mummified child from San Francisco in his talk “The Child That History Forgot” on Tuesday, April 24, 9:00 a.m. in the Recital Hall.


In 2016, workers unearthed a sealed metal coffin buried in the backyard of a San Francisco residence. Their startling discovery raised questions about the identity of the child found within whose remains were remarkably preserved. Dr. Jelmer Eerkens, an archaeologist at UC Davis, discusses his work on this unique case and how he and other researchers used genetic, genealogical, and forensic tools to reveal clues about health and living conditions in the 19th century and eventually, the child's very identity.


Dr. Eerkens is a professor of archaeology and director of the Archaeometry Lab at UC Davis. His projects span the globe from California to Peru to Western Europe and include research on ancient mining practices, the evolution of dice, and migration patterns among hunter-gatherers.

Google Makes Canvas Better
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Center for Instructional Innovation (BS-163/164)

There are several ways we can use Google tools and applications in our Canvas courses, and our status as a client of Google Suite for Education increases the available options. And we have single sign-on, which makes things even better! At this workshop you will learn how to take advantage of the connection between Google and Canvas to bring content from your Google Drive into Canvas, collect data from students using Google Forms, and leverage the convenience of cloud assignments with your Google Drive files.

Please register via the form DEWD Training for CRC.
