Sara A. McGuire
Bioarchaeologist & Post-Doctoral Fellow
Smithsonian Institution

Sara A. McGuire completed her doctorate in biological anthropology at the Ohio State University in 2020. Her dissertation examined the effects of Industrialization on individuals from England by analyzing the trace element pollutant composition of their skeletal remains in conjunction with aspects of their biosocial identities, such as age, sex, and socioeconomic status. Sara began a post-doctoral fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution in May 2022 that will examine the human skeletal remains from Arch Street. Her project seeks to increase our understanding of the effects of the American Revolution. Specifically, she will study whether the shift from British Colonial Rule to Self-Governance affected individuals' access to resources - particularly their access to food. She will be collecting and analyzing bone samples from 100 individuals in the Arch Street Collection for carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen isotopes. She will use these data to reconstruct individuals' diets at different periods of their lives to determine if there are indicators of dietary changes. She will also assess individuals' remains for skeletal manifestations of poor nutrition, such as porotic hyperostosis, cribra orbitalia, scurvy, and rickets, which reveal insight into the "quality" of individuals' diets. Sara's interests and research specializations include human-environment interactions, political ecology and structural violence, biogeochemistry, and the use of interdisciplinary methods to examine the physiological manifestations of historic processes.'s picture

Adjunct Professor and Post-Doctoral Researcher
The College of New Jersey and University of Pennsylvania

George M Leader is an archaeologist focused on the analysis of the material culture made and used by peoples of the past.  With over a decade of experience he has worked on a range of projects spanning material culture from the Earlier Stone Age of Africa to colonial America and on four continents.  Currently he heads research projects in South Africa and New Jersey and experimental research at University of Pennsylvania.  George joined the Arch St. team during the excavations of the remains and has been working closely as the remains found lab space.  George, Jared and Kimberlee co-taught the 2017 fieldschool for students to work with the remains as they are studied.  He holds a Ph.D. in archaeology from University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa from where he also earned his M.Sc.  His B.A. in Anthropology is from Gettysburg College, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Allison Grunwald

Allison Grunwald has worked with bones, both human and animal, since 2002. She received a BA from the University of Delaware (2005) as a dual major in Anthropology and Foreign Languages and Literature: Greco-Roman Studies (Latin Language), a MA from the University of Southampton, UK (2006) in Osteoarchaeology, and a PhD in Anthropology from the University of Wyoming (2016). Her MA research dealt with the analysis of commingled human and animal remains from the Iron Age in southern England, and her doctoral research comprised experimental zooarchaeology and bone fragmentation analysis, and the analysis of a 10,000 year old Bison antiquus archaeological bone bed resulting from a mass kill by Paleoindians. She brings to the Arch Street Project her experience and interest in working with commingled osteological remains, bone modification, and paleopathology.'s picture

Mütter Museum & Mütter Research Institute

Anna Dhody is the curator of the Mütter Museum and Director of the Mütter Research Institute of The College of the Physicians of Philadelphia.  As curator, she oversees the Mütter Museum's "disturbingly informative" collection, and works to provide a unique, informative experience for its 150,000-plus annual visitors.

Before joining the Mütter, she served as an osteologist at Harvard University's Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. In 2003, Ms. Dhody traveled to Peru to work with the United Nations Development Programme and the Public Ministry of Peru, identifying some of the estimated 69,000 Desaparecidos, "the disappeared," victims of state terrorism.  While in Peru, Ms. Dhody taught Human Osteology and Forensic Anthropology to employees of the Public Ministry and performed analysis on many of the found remains.

In 2014 Ms. Dhody formed the Mütter Research Institute to promote the research and use of historic specimens in modern scientific and medical research.'s picture
