Background and Research Interests

Terry entered the doctoral program at the University of Florida in the Fall of 2015 after completion of his Masterís degree at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. 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 has been on the prehistory of the southeastern United States, specifically Archaic hunter-gatherer populations. He is also interested in ritual and symbolism, landscape use and interaction, lithic analysis, artifact refitting, and prehistoric technology. His Masterís 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. He also undertook an independent study utilizing the ceramic and stone pipe assemblage from the Mississippian Town Creek Mound site to better understand smoking ritual in the South Appalachian Mississippian region.

Current Research Projects

At the University of Florida, Terry has joined the team at the Laboratory of Southeastern Archaeology and will aid in processing materials from the 2015 field season, and continue to research coastal hunter-gatherer populations.
