Contract Archaeology by Virginia Hatfield

I have been working in contract archaeology for over 20 years and as a project manager/archaeologist for the past 7 years, mostly in Texas, but also in Kansas and Missouri. Work on the southern high plains included the survey of a water pipeline from Lake Allen Henry to Lubbock, as well as small surveys in the city of Lubbock and surrounding areas. I have conducted survey and testing phase work at Fort Hood, in and around Waco and Temple, and in much of east Texas.

Research by Virginia Hatfield

As an independent scholar and through my adjunct status at the University of Kansas, Biodiversity Department, I continue to conduct research in the Aleutian Islands. Currently, I am building a data base to compare radiocarbon dates, features, and artifacts from the Aleutian Islands, relying on many other Aleutian researchers for their contributions. Hopefully this data will provide insight into the prehistory of this region. Plans for further fieldwork are in motion and will be conducted through the University of Kansas with Dixie West.

Included below are a few of my publications on the Aleutians:
