Forensic Sculpter to Speak at PPHM Event

- Forensic sculptor Amanda Danning will present Written in Bone at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum on Wednesday, April 16th at 6 p.m. Written in Bone focuses on Sam, whose 10,000 plus-year-old remains, along with those of a juvenile girl, were found in a sediment-filled shelter along the Brazos River in Central Texas. Danning was commissioned to do the facial reconstruction on the skull with collaboration from Dr. Doug Owsley, head of the physical anthropology department of the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History. It was determined that Sam did not resemble any of the Native Americans known to have resided in North America.

The event will take place in the Hazlewood Lecture Hall of PPHM from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.; light refreshments will be provided. Museum members, West Texas A&M faculty, staff and students are free of charge and all other guests are $5 charged at the door for the event. To make reservations please contact Amy Mitchell at  or 806-651-2242. Seats must be reserved by April 14th.
