Christine Lee is a bioarchaeologist who reconstructs the lives of ancient human skeletons from archaeological excavations. Her research interests include ethnic identity in ancient Central and East Asia. She has previously researched several populations along the Great Wall of China to see how different people were on the “Chinese” side from the “Barbarians” in the North. When did they become cohesive ethnic groups and how have they changed over thousands of years? Other research projects have looked at cultural body modifications. These include any physical changes made to the body to make it look distinct from others such as knocking out certain teeth, reshaping the head, and binding the feet. Her latest research is on a newly discovered cemetery in Mongolia. The population buried in this cemetery comes from one of the two “missing dynasties” in Mongolian history. This culture is not very well known yet and no one is sure who are their descendants. The main goal of these research projects is to gain a better understanding of the diversity of Asian populations. Through her work Christine hopes to foster curiosity and conversations on how the many forgotten ancient populations of East Asia have made major contributions to modern history.
