SWCA: Environmental Consultant Agency July 2011 – Nov 2012
Archaeological Field Technician: Worked as a full time employee for SWCA Denver Office. Currently still employed by SWCA. Responsibilities included but were not limited to; ground survey, recording both prehistoric and historic sites, basic structures that may be present (i.e. wikiups, brush fences, and early historic ranches and fences), recording of isolated finds, and shovel test pits when it was determined that the soil depth and artifact density may be indicative of sub surface material. Knowledge of the geologic surroundings, historical context, and basic flora and fauna was necessary in order to adequately survey and record findings. No collection of any type was done by the seismic surveyors.
2010 CSU Archaeology Field School May 2010 – July 2010
For an 8 week period, I participated in the CSU Field School during the summer of 2010 directed by Dr. Jason Labelle. During this period, the class worked on several sites including the Lindenmeier Folsom type site, Lindenmeier Spring, and a high altitude site named Benedict’s Rock in Boulder County, CO in honor of Dr. Jim Benedict whose property we were surveying for the final 2 weeks. Activities and responsibilities that were expected from me included surface collections, GPS mapping, pace/compass mapping, test excavation units, shovel tests pits (STP), collection/identification of cultural material, identifying and recording stone circles and thermal features using grid mapping, the set up and use of Sokkia 4E total station, soil analysis and soil profiles, and assisting in public tour led by Dr. Jason Labelle.
Laboratory of Public Archaeology Jan 2011-May 2011
During the spring of 2011 I participated in a practicum/independent study program through CSU which involved the relocation of CSU’s Laboratory of Public Archaeology to an on campus site. This involved me spending ninety plus hours of the semester working in the repository cataloguing artifacts found in sites such as Hudson-Meng bison kill site and organizing sites by county throughout the Great Plains region. Other responsibilities included organizing the laboratory’s library, field notes, assisting in the creation of teaching collections for future students, and other activities that were necessary for the completion of laboratory relocation.
Laboratory of Public Archaeology Aug 2010-Dec 2010
The course focused on Anthropological Report Preparation it was my responsibility to fully analyze and create an official manuscript for Lindenmeier Spring (5LR11697) site. This included data analysis, cleaning of lithics, wet/dry screening, identifying material used for lithic production, Excel training including creating quality graphs and charts, cataloguing including maps and pictures of lithics, and the creation of an official manuscript accounting for every activity and find that occurred during our field school survey of the Lindenmeier Spring (5LR11697) site which is located near the Lindenmeier Folsom site. My responsibilities also included creating a large poster that could relate to the public a general overview of what the CSU field school discovered during the survey of Lindenmeier Spring and what it could mean for future research and excavations in the area.
Plains Anthropological Conference Oct 6-9, 2010
The poster that I had created for Lindenmeier Spring (5LR11697) was placed on display during the 68th annual Plains Anthropological Conference in Bismarck, ND. I was also the co-author of another CSU student’s poster representing the Shady Grove site (S10-2), which was also surveyed during the 2010 CSU summer field school. Professors, students, and other individuals interested in anthropology would view mine, and other student’s posters representing their personal analysis of given projects/sites.
