Forensic Aviation Archaeology in Austria, Study Abroad Info Session

The Forensic Aviation Archaeology: Recovery of a World War II Aircraft Crash Site program is an archaeological field school to survey and investigate previously located aircraft crash sites from the Second World War. The mission is to identify and recover the wreckage of the aircraft and the human remains of the missing-in-action (MIA) flight crew member(s) of this aircraft. The Department of Defense (DOD) is tasked by the U.S. Congress through the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) to provide the fullest possible accounting of missing personnel to their families and the nation. The DPAA recognizes the valuable experience and training that can be gained in these recovery missions and has requested a strategic partnership with the University of Maryland, College Park to carry out a part of their mission.

Please come to Woods Hall 1102 on Tuesday, December 6 from 4 to 5 pm to learn more about this Study Abroad tip that will take place in the 2017 Summer Session II from Marilyn London, the forensic anthropologist who will be leading the trip.
