Research Project

Angela is interested in explaining Upper Paleolithic and Paleoindian technological organization, hunter-gatherer ecology, human behavioral adaptation, and modern human dispersals in Beringia and the Americas. Her dissertation research is focused on the interaction of human culture and the environment in the North American sub-Arctic, specifically concerning lithic toolstone technologies from the Late Pleistocene and Holocene of interior Alaska. She is especially interested in how toolstone selection, procurement, and geochemical sourcing can help archaeologists reconstruct environmental constraints, mobility, technologies, landscape use, and landscape learning through time. Angela has experience working as a field technician on several CSFA field projects including excavations at the Debra L. Friedkin site in central Texas, on Sakhalin Island, Russia, as well as several central Alaskan sites including Owl Ridge, Dry Creek, Blair Lakes, and McDonald Creek. She is currently co-directing excavations at Little Panguingue Creek in collaboration with The University of Paris Nanterre.  Technology and Human Response Owl Ridge
