Eleven years ago this month, Rachel Wentz walked away from an adrenalin-filled career as a firefighter/paramedic to pursue a Ph.D in anthropology, specializing in the analysis of human remains. In Chasing Bones: An Archaeologist’s Pursuit of Skeletons, we are fortunate to travel with Dr. Wentz to the famed museums of London, Paris and Italy, the fragrant landscapes of Ukraine, the beautiful shores of the Caribbean, and back to Florida in this engaging and fast-paced memoir that provides the reader a first-hand glimpse into the fascinating world of bioarchaeology where skeletons hold the clues to past lives and the ancient civilizations from which they came.
