PKAP and North Dakota

I was honored and excited to be invited to give the keynote speech at the North Dakota Archaeological Association annual meeting and banquet.  My talk, entitled “Surveying Cyprus from North Dakota” represents our ongoing efforts to communicate our methods, results, and interpretations to both the archaeological community and general public in North Dakota.  We look forward to visiting some of the important historic sites of central North Dakota including Menoken Indian Village and Double Ditch Indian Village.  We also look forward to seeing the North Dakota Heritage Center and learning all we can about the archaeology of the Northern Plains.

Our project has been greatly influenced by methods developed in North America so it is particularly gratifying to be able to present the results of this research to a group of archaeologists who use these methods daily to construct the North Dakota’s archaeological landscape.  The talk features a basic introductions to the challenges and opportunities of working in Cyprus, some examples of our finds, analyses based on our GIS, and some preliminary conclusions.  It concludes with a discussion of our future goals and points of ongoing contact between archaeology in the old and new worlds.
