Background and Research Interests

Terry entered the doctoral program at the University of Florida in the fall of 2015 after completion of his Master's degree at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. His thesis examined the 2011 field season material from a stratified relict dune site along the Tar River in the Coastal Plain of North Carolina containing Early Archaic through Early Woodland deposits. Prior to returning to graduate studies at ECU he spent three years as a field technician and crew leader on cultural resource projects primarily in the lower southeast and Tennessee Valley. His concentration is now on the late pre-Columbian communities of Florida and the Gulf Coast. He is also interested in the ritual and spiritual use of marine shell, the materiality of marine shell, Practice Theory, social landscapes and place-making, monumentality, and pre-Columbian technology.

Current Research Projects

At the University of Florida, Terry's dissertation work is focused on the shell bead industry and attendant economic practices centered on Raleigh Island, located north of Cedar Key, Florida. Additionally, he assists in various projects and analyses undertaken by LSA staff and affiliates.
