About the speaker:
Dr. Waselkov has a BA in anthropology from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and an MA and a PhD in anthropology from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. After working for nine years as a research associate at Auburn University, he began teaching at the University of South Alabama in 1988.
Research projects have included large-scale excavations at Old Mobile, the original site of the French colonial town dating to 1702-1711, and at Fort Mims, destroyed in 1813 by a Redstick Creek Indian force in a battle that changed the course of American history. Other projects have investigated prehistoric life on the Gulf coast, particularly during the Woodland and Mississippian periods, from AD 500 to 1550, with a particular emphasis on seasonal exploitation of estuarine food sources. Waselkov has received numerous research grants from the National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Park Service, and many other federal and state agencies.
