I am an archaeologist who teaches a wide variety of courses and conducts field work in southeastern British Columbia, Ireland, and Southwest Asia. Through field, classroom, and laboratory research, students in the Archaeology Concentration are provided with intellectually challenging content and the training to succeed in a professional career, whether in the private sector or in a graduate program.
At Hamilton College, students concentrating in archaeology enjoy state of the art technology, conduct original research projects, and have the opportunity for travel into the field. In the past our students have conducted a broad range of projects on stone tool analysis, historic archaeology, Old World ceramic analysis, and raw material sourcing using X-Ray Fluorescence technology.
We currently have archaeology alumni in graduate programs at the University of Michigan, Washington University, Tulane, University of New Mexico, University of Wyoming, George Washington University, the University of Washington, and the University of Lund. Several students have pursued careers in the private sector working for the BLM, Forest Service, and Cultural Resource Management private companies.
