AEP researchers Drs. Thomas Foster (University of West Georgia), Barnet Pavao-Zuckerman (University of Arizona), and Roger Brown (Columbus State University) were awarded a National Science Foundation grant of $211,320 to conduct interdisciplinary research on Native American adaptation to anthropogenic environments and colonial frontier economy. The award will fund archaeological, geological, zoological, botanical, historical, and geographic research at a seventeenth to eighteenth century Native American village in Alabama. The research will recreate the natural environment of the native community while simultaneosly measuring how the inhabitants adapted to social, economic, and ecologial change. The project is a joing effort between the University of West Georgia, the University of Arizona, Columbus State University, the Pennsylvania State University, and the Muscogee Creek Nation. Dr. Foster is the lead Principal Investigator on the project and can be reached at tfoster@westga.edu.
