Victoria plans to conduct an in-depth study of variation in life histories and burial treatments of dogs from the prehistoric American Southwest, a project which has the potential to transform our understanding of the roles of these domestic animals in North American prehistory. A comparison of variables-such as breed, diet, health, and genetic lineage-between dogs that were intentionally buried and dogs that were not, would provide information about how differently the dogs were treated before death and if that influenced their burial treatment. In addition, her proposed research has a strong public outreach component which will further support inclusion of underserved communities in non traditionally represented groups in science.
