About the Author:

Mark Q. Sutton decided to become an archaeologist when he was 10 years old after reading a book on archaeology. In 1968, while still in high school, he took advantage of the opportunity to participate in archaeological excavations conducted by the local community college. He went on to earn a B.A. (1972), an M.A. (1977), and a Ph.D. (1987) in anthropology. He worked as an archaeologist for the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and various private consulting firms and taught at a number of community colleges and universities. He has been at California State University, Bakersfield, since 1987 and is a professor of anthropology. Dr. Sutton has conducted hundreds of surveys and has excavated at more than 100 sites in western North America. He has published over 140 books, monographs, and articles on archaeology.

 

Robert M. Yohe II received his B.A. in anthropology at California State University, San Bernardino, in 1983 and his M.A. and Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of California, Riverside, in 1990 and 1992, respectively. From 1990 to 1993, he served as assistant director and then director of the Cultural Resources Facility at California State University, Bakersfield, and was an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. In 1993, Dr. Yohe was appointed State Archaeologist and administrator of the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office.
