Director of Operations – Louisiana
Paul Bundy has over 20 years of archaeological experience working in the southeastern United States. He holds a master’s degree in anthropology with an emphasis in public archaeology. Paul has managed a wide variety of projects including phase I archaeological surveys covering a total of over 40,000 acres, phase II archaeological testing projects (including Late Archaic, Early Woodland, Middle Woodland, and Mississippian sites), and phase III data recoveries/research excavations (including Early, Middle, and Late Archaic; Middle and Late Woodland; Mississippian; and late nineteenth to early twentieth century sites). His main areas of interest are prehistoric lithic industries and late prehistoric ceramics, but he has experience with the full range of historic and prehistoric materials and sites.
Paul has been an employee of CRA since 2003. Since that time, he has served as a Project Archaeologist, Lithic Specialist, Principal Investigator, and now serves as Director of Operations in Louisiana. He is responsible for coordination with state and federal agencies and private sector clients; development of research designs, scopes of work, and budgets; technical review of project reports; project staffing; and management of field and office personnel.
Beyond archaeology, Paul enjoys spending time with his family, endurance/distance/trail running, hiking, and travelling. He runs nearly every day and does several races a year, but is convinced that this is normal.
