Hello,

I am a recent University College London graduate with an MSc in palaeoanthropology and palaeolithic archaeology. I am a Colorado native looking to gain any type of practical experience. I work hard in any condition and take direction well. I have experience in forensic excavation, lithic analysis, and osteological analysis. I have worked in Colorado and Peru previously. If interested, please e-mail me at nbstephens@comcast.net.

Thanks for your time,

Nick Stephens
