I am exploring the Ancient Mojave lake systems accessing material from six different areas of science.
My goal is to create an educational resource for both advocates and students of desert studies.
I have a history of enthusiastic archaeological interest extending into my youth. Later, as a student at University of California, Riverside, one of my areas of study was anthropology. For years I taught school. After retirement I became interested in desert studies which led to involvement with Calico Mountains Archaeology Site. Then I joined the board and built their website.
I spent endless hours looking over the extensive Manix Basin. Countless times I witnessed the light begin to form in the morning in the east and then wane as the sun set in the west.
My imagination was in full bloom conjuring visions of human and other animal's many faceted relationship along the lakefront environment.
The answer to my many questions only created more questions. That was when I realized that embedded in my future was to create a website that would include basic information and links for interested individuals to followup and dig deeper. Our goal is to create an educational site that continues to grow. Because you can't explain the entire Mojave River watershed using one area of study, we decided to connect the six basic relevant study areas: archaeology, anthropology, paleontology, geology, geography and hydrology.
I am multi-skilled and a curious specialist who is always up for a challenge and learning as fast as research and discoveries allow me. I invite fellow curious individuals and institutions to join with Ancient Mojave.
