About Me

Overseeing work at the temple early in day. Dangeil 2009.

Yours truly overseeing work at the temple early in the day (Dangeil 2009).

Really. I am a real archaeologist. I even have the hat. (The hat is pretty much the only thing a real archaeologist has in common with Indiana Jones.) Mine, I have to admit, is pretty awesome. I love my Tilley. Not only am I an archaeologist, I’m also an Egyptologist and a Nubiologist.

Oh! I’m also a museum curator.  I take care of the collections of Egyptian, Classical, Pre-Columbian, Oceanic and Near Eastern art at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh. I guess I wear many hats!
