The CAA would like to introduce another 2014 Women in Archeology intern: Katie Leslie. Katie might be a familiar face to many of you because she is one of two returning WIA interns from 2013. We’re lucky and delighted to have her back!

An honors graduate of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Katie received her B.A. in anthropology and a minor in classic studies. For the past several years, Katie has worked as an archeologist for the state of Illinois’s archeological survey where she is a crew chief and assistant bioarcheologist. Over the course of her studies and her early career work in archeology, Katie has developed interests in Midwest archeology, bioarcheology, and mortuary studies. Given Katie’s experiences as an archeologist and CAA staff member, we know she will make an excellent addition to our 2014 team. Welcome back Katie!
