FIELD-ORIENTED RESEARCH PROJECTS IN ARCHAEOLOGICAL GEOLOGY:

1. Petrology of stones used in ancient Egyptian sculptures and monuments, and the geoarchaeology of the quarries from which these stones were obtained. Quarries included date mainly from the Dynastic/Pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods, but also from the medieval Islamic period. It is expected that this research will lead to the publication of a reference book entitled "Rocks and Minerals of Ancient Egypt: Varieties, Sources, Uses and Technologies". To date I have made 30 trips to Egypt in support of this research [in '89 twice, '90, '91, '92, '93, '94, '95, '96, '97, '98, '99, '00, '01 twice, '02, '03, ’04, ’05, ’06, ‘07, '08, '09, '10 twice, '11, '12, '13 twice, and '14] and I plan to do other trips in fall 2014 and winter/spring 2015.

2. Archaeological geology of the Greco-Roman port city of Berenike on the southeastern Red Sea coast of Egypt. I am serving as the site geologist on a joint U.S.-Polish (originally Dutch) excavation that will continue for several more years. The Berenike excavations went inactive in 2001 and resumed in 2009. To date I have made 6 trips to Berenike [in '95, '96, '97, '99, and '01] and to Coptos (Qift) [in '02] in support of this research. 

3. Archaeological geology of New Kingdom and Napatan-Meroitic quarries and mines in northern Sudan. To date I have made 4 trips to Sudan in support of this research [in '96, '97,  '07 and '08] and I plan to do another trip in fall 2015.

4. Archaeological geology of the Sabaean temples in Marib, Yemen, and the nearby quarries. To date I have made 1 trip to Yemen in support of this research [in '06].

5. Archaeological geology of the Himyarite and medieval Islamic fortress settlement site of Jurash in southwestern Saudi Arabia (Asir Province). To date I have made 1 trip to Saudi Arabia in support of this research [in '09].
