Our staff has earned the reputation of being one of the top cultural resource organizations in the Midwest. We have a permanent staff of 16, with 7 full time archaeologists.
Ten senior staff with advanced degrees in Archaeology or Geography are qualified to serve as Principal Investigators under the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Archaeology and Historic Preservation.
Two senior archaeologists are approved to conduct Burial Site authentications in the state of Minnesota, and
four have been approved to investigate and excavate human remains in Wisconsin.
A full time architectural historian, an archaeobotanist, an
archaeozoologist, and two specialists in archaeology education complete our staff of in-house experts.
