About the Author

Pat first fell in love with Archaeology when neighbors gifted her a book about Mesopotamia. She went on to study Anthropology and Archaeology at Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania. She has been directing research in Honduras since 1975 where she has pursued her love of ancient ceramics, making maps, excavating, and theory dealing with structuration, inequality, the state, and craft production. Due to her parents' move to Panama and her teaching responsibilities for more than three decades at Kenyon, she has also studied Mexican and Central American ethnography and history from the European arrival to the present day. Ed's interest in Archaeology was sparked by his first dig in Winchester, England in 1970. Graduating with a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, Ed has been directing with Pat Urban and other colleagues, research in northwestern Honduras since 1983. Ed has taught Anthropology and Archaeology at Kenyon College since 1981 and continues to pursue research interests that include social network analyses, the roots of inequality, and interregional interaction.
