Dr. Sherwood is an Anthropological Archaeologist with a specialty in Geoarchaeology. On the Southern Cumberland Plateau she is specifically interested in prehistoric land use change over time and site formation processes of sandstone rockshelters. She and her Sewanee students are working with colleagues from various institutions on the development of indigenous horticulture. Beyond the Plateau she studies the geoarchaeology of prehistoric earthworks and mounds and how they were built. In the Midsouth, she is particularly interested in Middle Woodland and monumental architecture. In Eastern Europe she primarily works in Romania and Serbia on “urban” tells where Neolithic and later Bronze Age people congregated. Her focus there is on stratigraphy and the anthropogenic sediments that reveal daily activities and spatial organization, primarily using soil/sediment micromorphology. All of this research is carried out in collaboration with her Sewanee students, regional graduate students, and her archaeology and geology colleagues.
