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 have directed field projects in Maryland, Louisiana, New York, and New Jersey. I earned a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Columbia University in 1998 and am the author of three books, An Archaeology of History and Tradition (2002), The Archaeology of American Capitalism (2010), and A Struggle For Heritage (2020).
