Kathryn Kamp teaches anthropology and archaeology at Grinnell College. While she has worked in Syria and Belize, her major research focus is the study of the Puebloan populations who once resided near modern Flagstaff, Arizona where she has been excavating and doing survey for over twenty years. She is interested in past identities, particularly childhood, experimental archaeology and ethnoarchaeology, and the cultural dynamics of middle range societies. She is presently planning an ethnoarchaeological study in Turkey.


Life In the Pueblo: Understanding the Past Through Archaeology
Provides a description of basic archaeological methods using Grinnell's excavations at Lizard Man Village as a case study. A short fictional story invites the reader to reflect on the fact that the past was populated by people, not potsherds.
