Contract Archaeology by Virginia Hatfield

I have been working in contract archaeology for over 20 years and as a project manager/archaeologist, mostly in Alaska and Texas, but also in Kansas and Missouri. My Alaska work has been in the City of Unalaska and includes projects for the City as well as for engineering firms. 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.
