American Archaeology

This winter I was briefly quoted in American Archeology, the quarterly publication of the Archaeological Conservancy.  It was in an article about the Cliff Mining project mounted by Michigan Tech’s Industrial Heritage program I was asked about the project as a subject matter expert.  It was just a few lines…but I’m happy to congratulate MTU’s project on a job well done and get in a plug for my organization–The Arkansas Archeological Survey….

“On its most basic level the Cliff Mine project is important because it documents a historic place–and an industry–that was terribly important in late 19th-century America.  But the project is much more than that,” says Jamie Brandon, an archeologist with the Arkansas Archeological Survey who has done extensive research on industrial sites in Arkansas.  Through MTU’s community outreach, the project “examines how copper as a resource and mining as an industry play into the identity of the region.”
