Prehistory Research Project

Spring 2021 Site Review

Position: Research Intern
Student: Anthropology Junior

The Prehistory Research Project is an archaeological research institute currently based out of the University of Texas at Austin devoted to the research and analysis of Clovis and Pre-Clovis cultures in the Americas. I came to intern at the Prehistory Research Project laboratory through my department; an e-mail sent to all anthropology students requesting interns for the organization. My main duties in the lab were assisting in the identification and cataloging of lithic artifacts from a variety of collections and sites, along with aiding with physical labor and organization tasks. After the outbreak of COVID-19, I was redirected to doing an online, research survey on how the collection I was working with fits into the larger area of study of Clovis lithic analysis. It’s been an absolute joy to intern at the Prehistory Research Project laboratory, being able to get hands-on experience with artifacts was an especially unique and interesting experience!
