About Kent Mead
I am a student in the Applied Archaeology Master’s Program. Originally from Ohio, I have spent the past eight years in the Southwest, mostly in New Mexico. I graduated with an A.A.S. in Archaeology from Hocking College in 2000 and received a B.A. in Archaeology from Kent State University in 2005. For the past 16 years, I have worked CRM Archaeology predominantly in the Ohio Valley and the Southwest U.S. in addition to two field seasons volunteering in northern Belize with the Maya Research Program. My research interests include settlement studies, architecture, landscape archaeology, Woodland Period Cultures the Midwest U.S., and the greater Southwest with a focus on the Mimbres Mogollon. Current research interests include remote sensing from a UAS platform to collect photogrammetry, Lidar, and multispectral imagery for use in documenting and analyzing site surface expressions.
