Crow Canyon Welcomes New Field Archaeologist Tim Wilcox

Posted May 9, 2019

There will be a new face out at the Haynie site this year, as the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center welcomes Tim Wilcox as a Field Archaeologist.

Tim is a Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University with 30 years of experience in Southwest archaeology working for organizations like the Navajo Nation Archaeology Department, Desert Archaeology Inc., and Stanford University Heritage Services. He also served as a ceramic specialist consultant for the Eiteljorg Museum of the West and the Poeh Center in New Mexico.

At Stanford, Tim is in the process of completing his dissertation on proto-historic and Pueblo Revolt era pottery with a focus on group social dynamics and technology of style. He is also an accomplished replica potter (Pueblo and Diné pottery), flintknapper, weaver, and hide tanner.

Tim, who is Diné and Tewa (Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo), also has extensive experience with tribal consultation, community engagement, and agency partnerships.

“Tim brings a wealth of field and research experience to Crow Canyon,” says Susan Ryan, Ph.D., Director of Archaeology at Crow Canyon. “Our Archaeology Research Program participants are going to enjoy working with Tim at the Haynie site.”
