So I figured I might as well, too.

My name is Erich Schroeder, and I am a dissertator from Texas A&M University
in historical archaeology.  My BS is in geology from the Univ of Minnesota-
Duluth and I have a MA from U of Wisconsin-Madison in archaeology.  For the
past 10 years or so I have worked in Illinois, mostly at the Illinois State
Museum.

My dissertation is based on the historical archaeolgical portion of a highway
project, but has shifted to a duel emphasis on historical demography and
settlement patterns during the frontier period of central Illinois (1820-1870)
approximatly.  I, like one of the other introducees, was drawn by the
"historical anthropology" mention in the adversitising post.

Also, my present job at the State Museum is to work with the GIS-based Faunmap
project.  This is a project that has collected nearly 3000 pleistocene and
holocene faunal assemblages from the 48 United States, and my job is to help
with the display and spatial analysis of the distribtion of taxa through
time.  I'll be interested in reading what goes on here, although I tend to
be a lurker.
