I am a founder and a charter member of the Mid-Columbia Archaeology Society. I have excavated and lead digs (excavations) from Wakemap Mound, Chiawana Park, and the great Umatilla Town site. With degrees in Archaeology and Anthropology, Geology and Botany, I can approach authentication from many aspects. An in-depth analysis is performed on every artifact including cultural affiliation, lithic technology, type, age, and taphonomic evaluation.
