Senior Archaeologist, Savannah
Mr. Alex Sweeney (M.A., University of South Carolina) has over 13 years of experience in southeastern archaeology. He has skills in prehistoric and historic archaeological research, archival research, and GIS applications. Alex served as a co-author and field director for numerous survey, testing, and data recovery projects that were located in Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Michigan, and Japan. He also served as a laboratory supervisor and field technician for our firm from 1997-2001. Prior to his employment with our firm, Alex worked as an intern for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. His graduate research at the University of South Carolina was conducted on a Contact Period Native American village in the lower coastal plain of South Carolina, and examined the ethnogenesis and migration of the associated Native American group. This research required a comparison of stylistic attributes of data collected from contemporaneous sited in the region to examine if group identity and differences can be inferred from the archaeological record. Alex currently serves as the branch manager and senior archaeologist in our Savannah office.
