Michael Roller, PhD graduate from the Department of Anthropology, publishes a new book titled An Archaeology of Structural Violence: Life in a Twentieth-Century Coal Town. This book uses material evidence from life in a coal-mining town to show the political economy of the United States in the twentieth century. At the center of discussion in his book is the 1897 Lattimer Massacre one of the bloodiest acts of labor violence in US history. He continues his focus on the community where this bloody event occurred and demonstrates how the landscape of this region changed over time.
