HISTORY OF RESEARCH

Vance Holliday received a B.A. with Honors in Anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin (1972); an M.A. in Museum Science from Texas Tech University (1977); and a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Colorado-Boulder (1982). He was on the faculty of the Departments of Geography and Anthropology at Texas A&M University (1984-1986), and Department of Geography, University of Wisconsin-Madison (1986-2002). Since 2002 he has been a professor in both the Departments of Anthropology and Geosciences at the University of Arizona.

He is also Executive Director of the Argonaut Archaeological Research Fund (AARF) . As a student his initial interests were in Texas archaeology, in part spurred by field experience throughout the state as an employee of the Texas Archeological Salvage Project (renamed the Texas Archeological Survey; eventually subsumed by the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory). An opportunity to work at the Lubbock Lake archaeological site expanded his interest in Paleoindian archaeology and sparked an interest in soils and geoarchaeology. This led to PhD research on soils at Lubbock Lake.

His research now includes geoarchaeology, Paleoindian archaeology, soil-geomorphology, and Quaternary landscape evolution and paleoenvironments. Prior to joining the UA most of his work was on the Great Plains, working with Eileen Johnson at Texas Tech University (http://www.depts.ttu.edu/museumttu/lll/) and David Meltzer at SMU (http://smu.edu/anthro/faculty/dmeltzer/dmeltzer.htm), but is now turning to the Southwest U.S. and northern Mexico as part of AARF. Additional research included geoarchaeological field work on the Pampas of Argentina and in the Don River Valley of Russia (see references below) . He wrote three books, edited two others, authored or co-authored over 50 reviewed articles in journals and books, and wrote or co-authored another 20 articles and book chapters. His work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Geological Society of America, and the Leakey Foundation. Honors include the 1998 “Rip” Rapp Archaeological Geology Award of the G.S.A., and the 1998 Kirk Bryan Award of the G.S.A. (for one of the books).
