About the Author

Darcy Morey received his Ph.D. in anthropological archaeology in 1990 from the University of Tennessee, in Knoxville. Subsequently, he spent a year as a guest researcher at the University of Copenhagen Zoological Museum in Denmark. He was there for the express purpose of studying dog remains from archaeological sites in arctic Greenland. In addition to participating in archaeological fieldwork there in 1990, he has worked in Norway, France, and Denmark, as well as numerous places in the United States. He has published actively on a variety of topics, with his work on dogs being especially prominent. On that general topic, he has published as sole or senior author many articles and book reviews in journals such as Arctic, Journal of Archaeological Science, Quarterly Review of Biology, Archaeozoologia, Current Anthropology, and Journal of Alabama Archaeology. Dr Morey has also published on the topic of dogs in popular science outlets, for example the American Scientist and La Recherche. He joined the faculty at the University of Kansas in Lawrence in 1998. There, in addition to his ongoing research activities, he was selected by students as the most notable teacher of undergraduates in his department (Anthropology) in 2000. In addition, in 2002 he was elected to the Alpha Pi chapter of Phi Beta Delta, The Honor Society for International Scholars. He resigned from the University of Kansas in 2006 and began working at the University of Tennessee, Martin.

Reviews

"Like a hound on scent, Darcy Morey pursues the dog down the twisting paths of prehistory to its wolf origins and then tracks back through the dense tangle of contemporary genetic and neurological research to show how it came to capture our homes and hearts. [This book] is a work of love and of intellect that confirms Morey as our foremost dog archaeologist." -Mark Derr, author, A Dog's History of America and Dog's Best Friend
