Alix Martin at archaeology site

Alexandra Martin is a former lecturer in the UNH Department of Anthropology and has returned as an Affiliate Postdoctoral Research Associate. Alix will graduate from The College of William & Mary in January 2018. Her doctoral research is a collaborative project with four Tribal Historic Preservation Offices in southern New England, which uses GIS analysis, landscape archaeology, and ethnohistory to contribute to the documentation and protection of indigenous ceremonial landscapes. Alix is also the archaeologist at Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth, NH, where she has directed the annual archaeological field school since 2014. As a postdoc affiliate, Alix will work with Professor Howey to develop an internship program at Strawbery Banke for UNH anthropology students. Alix is also participating in the Cultural Heritage Initiative with Dr. Peshkova and her students. Alix is always happy to talk with students interested in Native New England or museum archaeology!
