About Glenn


Bio

I am a Registered Professional Archaeologist with a Master's degree in Historical Archaeology specializing in Bioarchaeology (sometimes referred to as human osteology, osteoarchaeology, or physical anthropology) and a Bachelor's degree (double major) in Anthropology with focuses in archaeology and physical anthropology. My undergraduate minor was in Southeast Asian studies for which I lived a year in Thailand to conduct enthoarchaeological research for my Senior year.

I am a Registered Professional Archaeologist with a Master's degree in Historical Archaeology specializing in Bioarchaeology (sometimes referred to as human osteology, osteoarchaeology, or physical anthropology) and a Bachelor's degree (double major) in Anthropology with focuses in archaeology and physical anthropology. My undergraduate minor was in Southeast Asian studies for which I lived a year in Thailand to conduct enthoarchaeological research for my Senior year.

History and learning the skills of a historian are a major part of becoming a historical archaeologist. As a professional archaeologist and during my studies I have regularly been studying the various histories of the locals that I was excavating. These include not only knowing the basic histories of regions, but also being able to analyze source material critically, whether they are maps, diaries, oral sources, or local legends. My specialization in archaeology (and passion) is human osteology (i.e. the study of human bones). As such, I am also knowledgeable in human anatomy, especially the musculoskeletal system, and the skeletal system on the microscopic level. The study of human remains also entails the excavation process, the pathology of bone, determining age, sex, height, the minimum number of individuals/most likely number of individuals, potential cause of death, diet, and possible occupational activities. Other interests and areas I am knowledgeable in include burial customs, forensic archaeology/anthropology, zooarchaeology, and taphonomy.

My experience in the fields include several years of field work in Germany as well as field work in Iceland, the Dutch West Indies, Southeast Asia, New Zealand, and Australia. I also have several articles publish in peer-reviewed journals and a number of technical reports in the field of archaeology and physical anthropology. I am currently in the process of gathering data to begin my PhD focusing on Bioarchaeology.

Tutoring methods in history, anthropology (including physical anthropology/human evolution; linguistics/cognitive anthropology; cultural anthropology; and archaeology), and human osteology all begin with focusing on what area you are having difficulty in or need help in. The first session would be to determine this and figure out your needs. Are you the type that would need more visualization (e.g PowerPoints, images, etc) or do you need to discuss theoretical issues in order to understand them better? Once this is established, I can custom prepare for future lessons to suit your needs. I am generally laid back and enjoy having a back and forth conversation about the subject at hand. I find that this way allows students to not just memorize, but learn the subject so that it is second nature not to be forgotten.
