More About the Author

Mike is Professor of Anthropology and Head of the Department of Anthropology and Middle Eastern Cultures at Mississippi State University. His areas of interest include the archaeology of complex societies and state formation, as well as regional archaeological survey and the scientific analysis of artifacts. He has directed archaeological research projects in Albania and Greece, and in the state of Virginia.

From 1998-2003, he served as field director for the Mallakastra Regional Archaeological Project in central Albania. MRAP surveyed the hinterland of the ancient Greek colony of Apollonia and studied its interaction with indigenous Illyrian populations. Since 2004, he has directed (with Albanian colleagues) the Shala Valley Project, which studies the archaeology and history of the territory of the Shala tribe in the northern Albanian high mountains. Northern Albania is the only place in Europe where tribal societies survived into the 20th century.

During the same period, he co-directed (with historian Wayne E. Lee, UNC-Chapel Hill) the Loudoun Valley Historical Archaeology and Ecology Project in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, which included an annual undergraduate historical-archaeological field school. LVHAEP surveyed circa 1000 acres on the property of the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship and excavated an antebellum house on top of a Late Archaic camp.

Mike recently helped launch the Diros Project, a survey of the western Mani Peninsula, in Greece, focused on the Neolithic Alepotrypa Cave.
