We are delighted and excited to introduce our fourth and final WIA intern for 2014: Alison Shepherd. This will be Alison’s second year as a WIA intern. She came to us last year as a recent graduate from Emory University, where she received her B.A. in anthropology and a minor in Mediterranean archeology.
Alison is an outstanding teacher, working well with students of all ages new to archeology. She proved to be an asset to the CAA Education Program in 2013, and has continued to work with us beyond her internship. She was the lead author on a CAA poster presented at the Midwest Archaeological Conference, as well as a contributing author on a research paper. Her skills go beyond her ability to teach and conduct archeological research. As a talented artist, her work can be seen on the two new 2014 CAA t-shirt designs.
After completing her ten weeks in Kampsville last summer, Alison began her career as an assistant archeologist at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, conducting survey and excavation at various sites in Southern Maryland. All of us at the CAA are delighted to have Alison return to Kampsville in 2014. Welcome back Alison!!!
