Professor and Associate Head of Anthropology David G. Anderson recently published a book and received notification that his NSF grant proposal will be funded. His research foci include the archaeology of the southeastern US, the development of cultural complexity, colonization, and migration. Anderson’s new book, co-authored with Ken Sassaman (U. Florida), is titled Recent Developments in Southeastern Archaeology: From Colonization to Complexity and is published by the Society for American Archaeology Press, Washington, D.C. (2012).
Anderson was recently notified that his first NSF proposal, submitted this past December, will be funded. The project titled “Developing the Cyberinfrastructure for a National Archaeological Site Database,” has the potential to be truly transformative and was described by one NSF reviewer as a project that “could revolutionize archaeology” and “could very well be the best $141,000 that NSF ever spends.”
