I’m a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington’s anthropology program, where I received my bachelor of arts in anthropology with a focus on archaeology. I’m about to begin my graduate studies with an eye on at least an M.A. in the field of archaeology if not a Ph.D. My desire is to work in the field of cultural resource management but also to write about anthropology and, in particular, archaeology.
I have a fascination with pseudoarchaeology and so-called “alternative” archaeology and what it is that drives people to believe in this and other pseudoscientific notions, so I also find it interesting and, perhaps, necessary to write about these topics with an intent on clarifying and exposing them for the poor science that they are.
I’ve been blogging off an on for 10 years, with Hot Cup of Joe being my most prolific attempt. My original blog is/was at http://hotcupofjoe.blogspot.com/ and I moved it after some bad experience with the Blogger auto-spam software which removed/deleted one of my blogs thinking it was link-spam when every bit of the content was original and every link to a legitimate blog or site.
