About Brian Harmon

I am in the Applied Archaeology Master's program after 13 years of working as a supervisory archaeologist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and on the southeast edge of the San Juan Basin. My long term goals are developing cultural resource management plans and public outreach programs that will keep the world safe for archaeology.
