Profile

I am a historical archaeologist and professor of anthropology at Montclair State. My research interests are the archaeology of capitalism and race in the United States and the practice of community-based research. My work is focused on sites associated with slavery and freedom, and I has directed field projects in Maryland, Louisiana, New York, and New Jersey. I earned a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Columbia University in 1998. I am the author of two books, An Archaeology of History and Tradition and The Archaeology of American Capitalism. I am also co-editor of Ethnographic Archaeologies: Reflections on Stakeholders and Archaeological Practice as well as the author of several a book chapters and articles in journals such as Historical Archaeology, Journal of Social Archaeology, International Journal of Historical Archaeology, and Archaeologies.
