OVIASC and Mercyhurst have a new Partner in the Dig Project
On Wednesday, Sept. 17 at 11 a.m., a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between OVIASC, Harbor Branch Oceangraphic Institution and Mercyhurst University, paving the way for Mercyhurst to send bones that are found at the Old Vero Man site to HBOI’s ancient DNA lab for faculty and staff to process. The signing event and press conference took place at the HBOI Lab II Building, in Fort Pierce and included members of the OVIASC Board, Dr. Jim Adovasio, Dr. Andy Hemmings, Dr. Greg O’Corry-Crowe and other key members of Mercyhurst’s Archaeological Institute and HBOI. Press tours of the HBOI ancient DNA lab took place after the Press Conference and were followed by lunch and a round table discussion with all participants.
