What can we learn from the bones of those of the past? Those whose voices have gone unheard can now be heard. Join with bioarchaeologist Lisa Anderson, of the New York State Museum, as she helps us hear what these peole of the past have to tell us about their lives, their experiences, their challenges. What are the next steps for these people of the past? Where do we go from here? Laying in silence in the Town of Colonie, north of Albany, New York, let us listen to the voices of fourteen individuals who have contributed to the life and history of our capital region.
