Ariana Strasheim

Ariana is a staff cultural specialist/archaeological crew chief. She graduated from the University of Wyoming with a B.A. in Anthropology, a minor in criminal justice, and a minor in Spanish. After working as a deputy coroner in Laramie she went on to receive her master’s in forensic anthropology from the University of West Florida.

Ariana’s area of expertise lies in osteology—the study of the human skeleton. Beyond typical capabilities in archaeology, this means that she is also specially trained in the recovery and analysis of human skeletal remains, whether they are hundreds of years old or more recent. She has participated in forensic and archaeological excavations in Wyoming, Colorado, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, and Mexico City, Mexico, and recently settled down in her husband’s hometown of Big Horn, Wyoming.

In her free time, she enjoys fishing, reading, and a good cup of coffee.
