Current field research
The contribution of Northwest Africa to the cultural origins of modern humans: Archaeological excavations at Jorf el Hamam, southwest Morocco
My current field research is focused on the Middle Stone Age in Morocco. In November 2019, in collaboration with Dr. Jalil Bouzouggar (Institut National des Sciences de l'Archéologie et du Patrimoine, Rabat, Morocco), I conducted test excavations at the site of Jorf el Hamam along the southern Atlantic coast in Morocco. We found artifacts diagnostic of the Middle and Late Stone Age in well stratified deposits. We plan to conduct formal excavations in the summer of 2021.
