He recalls how the violence and tumult of civil war jolted his family, who, despite losing relatives, their home, and possessions, continued to nurture his wish to attend a university.

Archaeologies of Mobility and Movement

Edited, with Travis G. Parno. This volume argues that understanding movement in the past requires a shift away from traditional, fieldwork-based archaeological ontologies towards fluid, trajectory-based studies. Essays consider people, objects, and spaces that people and objects move through and the relationship among time, object, person, and space.
