Dr. Kent Lightfoot


In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Kent Lightfoot; Professor of Archeology at the University of California, Berkeley.

Dr. Lightfoot has a long tenure in archeology. One that begins at Stanford University, where he earned a BA in Anthropology. From there he went on to Arizona State University to earn both his MA and PhD in Anthropology. Following his own educational endeavors, he returned to California, and now teaches at UC Berkeley's Department of Anthropology.

Along the way, Dr. Lightfoot has had the opportunity to conduct archeological fieldwork in a variety of places. Including; New England, the American Southwest, and along the Pacific Coast of North America. With many of his studies over the past decade being focused on shell mounds of the greater San Francisco Bay area, the Russian colony of Fort Ross, historic Spanish missions in northern California, and landscape management practices employed by complex hunter-hunters in central California.

Listen to his answers to our 15 questions, and get an interesting perspective from someone who has conducted archeology in places that haven't been discussed on the podcast yet.
