A University of Wyoming Doctoral Student has been selected to serve as the new Wyoming State Archaeologist.

Greg Pierce succeeds Dr. Mark Miller, who retired in the spring of 2014 after holding the title for the past 30 years.

Pierce, a current PhD candidate in Anthropology at UW, has a Bachelor’s Degree in History and Anthropology from the University of Arizona and a Masters of Arts in Anthropology from East Carolina University. He has conducted research and fieldwork in the southeast United States and the American West.

In addition, Pierce has worked in North Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi, Colorado, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wyoming.

“I am honored to serve as the Wyoming State Archaeologist and eager to bring my passion for public archaeology to the Office of the State Archaeologist,” Pierce said when accepting the position. “I consider it a privilege to serve the people of Wyoming in this capacity.”
