Postcards From the Field
I’ve never done research quite as interdisciplinary as this. I’m working with archeologist April Watson on barrier islands of South Florida to understand how barrier island development influenced human habitation of the islands thousands of years ago. The artifacts inform us about human activity, and the sediment tells us about the environment of the tim. Digging up bones, shell, pottery, and sand in Florida during the summer makes for long, hot, humid, days, but I wouldn’t trade a minute of it!
