Powered by Osteons is an interesting bioarchaeology website with a focus on Rome but with a remarkably broad set of interests.  I have only scratched the surface myself.

Dr Kristina Killgrove is an “assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of West Florida.  My educational background includes degrees in Latin (BA, University of Virginia), Classical Archaeology (BA, University of Virginia; MA, UNC Chapel Hill), and Anthropology (MA, East Carolina University; PhD, UNC Chapel Hill).  I have a strong commitment to interdisciplinary work, as my research and teaching bridge the sometimes large divide between classics and anthropology.Dr is an assistant professor of biological anthropology at the University of West Florida.”

From her website:

“I am trained as a classical bioarchaeologist, and therefore am one of the few scholars who has started to answer questions about the ancient Romans using their skeletons. My research has focused primarily on immigration to Rome and urban collapse at Gabii during the Imperial period (1st-4th centuries AD). This work blends anthropological theory, biochemical analysis, and classical archaeology to find out more about people rarely represented in the historical record of the Roman world: immigrants, women, children, and slaves.”

Currently, I am an assistant professor of biological anthropology at the University of West Florida.”
