Name: William Bryce, MA, RPA

Title: Experimental Archaeologist and Lithic Analyst

Mr. Bryce has over ten years experience in professional archaeology, including the private and public sphere. His field experience includes the American Southeast, Midwest, and Southwest, with emphasis in the southwest. His expertise is in lithic analysis, including field and laboratory projects employing multiple technological and analytical methods commonly in conjunction with experimental archaeology and raw material sourcing studies. Much of his analyses have focused on flaked and ground stone manufacture and use, as well as how lithics relate to cultural traditions and lifeways. Years of analyses have led to a hypothetical stance of stone being influenced by a variety of contextual situations, such as, resource acquisition and economy, variation in manufacturing techniques and toolkits, and symbolic uses of stone. His current research focuses on manufacturing techniques, stone procurement, and the effects of technology on prehistoric economies.

Mr. Bryce’s research interests include the origins and ethnicities of Early Agriculturalists in the American Southwest, the interplay between hunter/gatherer and early agricultural groups, atlatl use and depiction, as well as resource procurement and foraging territories of Paleolithic and Archaic groups. His interests in the Formative era focus primarily on the groups that occupied the Flagstaff region of northern Arizona, particularly the Sinagua and their interactions with contemporary groups.
