About meAfter 43 years, I recently retired from a university anthropology museum where I was a collections manager for archaeological collections. My professional interests are mainly in the archaeology, prehistory and material culture of the Southwest US & Northwest MX, the US Great Plains, North America, western Europe, and the Middle East, more-or-less in that order.

About my libraryMy books reflect my working interests in Southwestern (US) archaeology and anthropology and my recreational reading, which tends toward ancient history, military history, biography, historical mysteries, and science fiction.
