Fieldwork & Faunal Analysis

I have done archaeological excavation and faunal analysis for several historic sites, both urban and rural, in the United States.  My current research is in New Orleans, where I participate in projects in a variety of neighborhoods around the city, most notably the Iberville Housing Project, which is the former location of the city’s red-light district and the subject of my dissertation.  In Chicago, I continue to be involved in the Charnley-Persky House Archaeological Project, which is a late 19th- to early 20th-century site in the Gold Coast neighborhood.  Check out the Digital Chicago website for more information on the project: Charnley-Persky House.
