An archaeologist from Florida Atlantic University’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is among a team of scientists who made a groundbreaking discovery in Huaca Prieta in coastal Peru – home to one of the earliest and largest pyramids in South America.

Who are you? A parent? An artist? A veteran? There are lots of different aspects of identity, and it takes more than just one to make you you.

Understanding them in detail gives researchers better insight into shifts that take place over generations, says Kelly Knudson...
