Anthropology-Cold Cases

This week’s University Beat on WUSF-TV takes you to a cemetery where a USF anthropologist is joined by a team of students in helping Saint Petersburg Police excavate a trio of long-buried bodies, which will hopefully finally give the families of these unnamed murder victims some sense of closure.

School of Global Sustainability

It’s a concept so big; no actual building can hold it! USF is now home to the country’s first School of Global Sustainability, which will support research into our global challenges as well as prepare students for the “Green Economy.” This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM brings you more from the school’s recent launch event.

Video Extras


Richard Estabrook, Central Region Director for the Florida Public Archaeology Network, talks about the excavation of the remains and the challenges the team faced.

Samantha Seasons, a USF Master’s student in Applied Anthropology, says she gets a lot out of taking part in projects like the excavation.
