    included the
    enigmatic Swanzey Fish Dam, a V-shaped alignment of boulders allegedly built and used by Native Americans. Our archaeological work at the dam site in the summer of 2002 produced the first convincing evidence that the dam was built by Native people, and was first used over 3,000 years ago. In 2010, I directed the excavations at the Tenant Swamp site in Keene, a 12,000 year old Paleoindian site that included four oval artifact concentrations representing house floors from the end of the ice age, over 200 stone tools, and the remains of caribou and other animals used by these earliest human inhabitants of the Monadnock Region.

    Q.)
    Would you
    ...
    calling? Why?
    It is more than a job to me. A job is to simply make money. If I wanted to make money, I would be doing something else. This is more of a career for me. It motivated me, and I can explore my field and my curiosities within it. Being an archaeologist is my own personal calling, I get tremendous satisfaction from doing it.

    Q.) What is your teaching philosophy?
    Q).This is something I don’t self-consciously think about. I know that the best teachers are the ones who are passionate about what they are teaching. I think teachers need to teach students to take charge in their education. Students need to find what they are passionate for and then enhance themselves in it. Teach them to discover what they want to do with their education.
    Q.)
    What made
    ...
    of schooling?
    In my field, you do not have to teach to be a successful archaeologist. The reason why I teach is because I am so passionate about what I do. When I started out teaching, I was told I was good at it and I enjoyed it as well. When a teacher is passionate about what they are teaching, it makes learning fun and enjoyable for the student. One of the reasons why I like teaching at Franklin Pierce is because I am able to take my students out into the field. This type of teaching and learning is the best way I can educate my students.

    Q.) If you could improve one thing here on campus, what would that be?
    Student academic culture; a culture that the students create around what they are studying with their fellow peers. In graduate schools, all you do with your fellow students is talk about your field and by that growing together within you field. You don’t see this is most colleges today, and I think it is important that students have this culture so they can grow with their peers as well.
    Q.) What did you want to be when you were a child?
    When I was five or six, I wanted to be a Paleontologist. I collected dinosaur toys and books, and watched television programs about them. My parents were happy to hear me answer questions on the TV and get them right. It soon changed where I wanted to be a baseball player and a musician. When I hit sophomore year of high school my main focus was being a scholar of Russian literature. I spent most of my time reading books from Russia and expanding my knowledge on their history.

    thoughtful exchange with a University employee and then document it in a creative way. Each student was paired with a partner and each was responsible for capturing the other’s exchange in words and images. Each student then created a wiki page using photos, illustrations, color, typography, and text that included meaningful phrases, quotations, interviews, and biographical information. Over 100 students had thoughtful exchanges with approximately 90 Franklin Pierce employees. (Several employees were asked to participate by more than one student.)
