Professor My research focuses in part on the application of geoarchaeological methods to the study of prehistory. For the past two decades my projects have involved the study of the continental shelves of the American Southeast. Three graduate students have produced theses and dissertations that arose from this work. Two others have completed research theses on east African sites. Additionally, students, under my direction, have completed archaeological geophysical studies on U.S. and European sites. One recent study in 2015 used radar and magnetometry to map a hill fort in the southern highlands of Scotland. Education: PhD, Anthropology, University of Missouri-Columbia, 1979 For further information about Dr. Garrison, please see profile on the Department of Anthropology website.
