National Public Radio featured UT’s Bass Donated Skeletal Collection and Dawnie Steadman, director of UT’s Forensic Anthropology Center, in this story.

The donated skeletal collection contains 1,200 skeletons — a draw for anthropologists, detectives and demographers who come to UT to learn how to read these bones. Because many of the bones belonged to people who died in the last thirty-five years, many bear the marks and products of modern medicine, including stainless steel used in hip replacements.

Boston’s NPR news station, 90.9 WBUR, also featured the story.
