Senior Archaeologist

Doug began doing archeological work when he was 14 years old, helping professional archeologists on a cultural resources management (CRM) project near his hometown in the Texas Panhandle. He’s happy to have been able to make a career out of his life-long passion.

As a senior archaeologist based in Austin, Doug primarily works with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and their Archeological Studies Program. Most of these efforts involve multidisciplinary archeological excavations including the Bolivar Archaeology Project, which began as road widening project and led to the first excavation of a nineteenth-century black-owned blacksmith shop in Texas. This project also stands as an example of his advocacy for the principle that publicly funded archeology should produce value for the local communities where we work and the descendant communities linked to the people and places that we study.

Studying history and past cultures fills Doug’s free time as well. He can be found traveling with his wife and visiting historic towns, museums, and antique shops. They regularly cruise the backroads and stop to wander around old cemeteries.
