Dave Weaver received his doctorate in Physical Anthropology from the University of New Mexico in 1977.  After teaching at Wake Forest University for 25 years he returned to New Mexico.  He has done field and lab work in North and Central America, Europe, and Africa on human skeletal analysis, forensic anthropology, human evolution, and osteoporosis as well as collaborative work with many other specialists.  In retirement he volunteers for the US Forest Service, the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center, and Animal Humane New Mexico and still travels as much as his schedule will allow.
