Name:
Brenna W.

Job Title:
Archaeologist - Project Manager

Briefly describe your job / a typical day for you:
I get up at the crack of dawn and drive hella far to get to construction sites to watch people in heavy machinery (graders, paddle scrapers, bulldozers, backhoes, excavators) dig up dirt and stop them if they encounter historic or pre-contact cultural resources. I specialize in human and non-human bones, so I am usually put in pre-contact sites to watch for burials. I work side by side with Native American descendant communities to help protect their ancestral sites from destruction: we help document the sites and relocate burials and artifacts to allow for construction to continue. On my non field days I am analyzing, quantifying, and writing reports, or planning new construction site mitigation for new projects.

1 thing you DISLIKE about your job:
Not all construction personnel are sensitive to archaeological resources, and don't care about ancient burials, so I spend a lot of extra energy engaging in preservation battles. (I ALWAYS win because antiquity laws have teeth)

1 thing you LOVE about your job:
Being thanked by Native American descendant communities for helping them protect their ancestral sites and their ancestors remains.

Favorite phrase (something you often say):
Cool Beans
