Joseph B. Curran (Anthropology) has co-authored an article, "War Clubs in Southern California: an Interdisciplinary Study of Blunt Force Weapons and Their Impact," with with David E. Raymond, an associate professor in the California State University, Los Angeles department of mechanical engineering. The article has been published in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory (JAMT). In this article an innovative interdisciplinary approach was utilized to understand how war clubs were used, how lethal trauma was inflicted, and what types of wounds these weapons potentially caused while used for Indigenous warfare in pre-contact Southern California. JAMT is the leading journal in its field and presents original articles that address method- or theory-focused issues of current archeological interest and represent significant explorations on the cutting edge of the discipline. Curran is a graduate student (ABD) of archeology.
