Maria Bruno is an anthropological archaeologist that investigates the development of agricultural systems in the Andes through the study of ancient plant remains. She works primarily in the Lake Titicaca Basin of Bolivia and studies both the modern agricultural practices of the indigenous Aymara communities today and the ancient ones that the inhabitants began to develop around 3000 years ago. She examines ancient remains of important crops like quinoa and maize (corn) as well as patterns in the weeds that grew alongside them. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology & Archaeology at Dickinson College.
