AAR has eight full-time staff members among whom five members have an advanced degree and the experience and training to meet or exceed the professional qualifications prescribed by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines. The three others are experienced, qualified archaeologists with a variety of skills and areas of expertise.
The staff includes experts in lithic, bone, and antler artifact identification and analysis, prehistoric and historical faunal identification, historical artifact identification, GIS operations, archaeogeophysical prospecting, historic preservation (including documenting aboveground cultural resources using HABS/HAER standards), primary document and archival research, and in preparing artifact collections for curation following federal curation requirements.
All staff members are fulltime employees that split their time between conducting fieldwork, working in the laboratory, and preparing reports. Each has extensive experience in all phases of archaeological fieldwork. AAR staff members maintain and augment their expertise through participating in or attending professional workshops and national or local-level conferences.
