This Outlander Science Club installment, Dem Bones Talk, segment 6 is based upon Voyager chapter 20, Diagnosis. Joe Abernathy, Claire’s best friend and fellow physician, asks her to tell him what she thinks of a set of bones. Unlike, a normal set of bones, these come from the anthropology department, and are of a white woman found in a Caribbean cave. She’s estimated to be 150-200 years of age. Claire assesses this woman was killed and not expecting to be.
This scene brings up to the field of Forensic Anthropology. You will learn what an FA does and why. Bones indeed do tell a story in very particular ways.
I hope you enjoy it.
What’s Coming up? segment 7 covers chapters 18-20. The next Outlander Science Club Prompt is “What does belinging mean to you?” Desirre Andrews will be discussing Maslow’s Hierarchy and more.
