Lydia McDermott

PhD Student

Research Interests: I am a PhD student at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in the field of Anthropology. My archaeological research centers on sacred structures and landscapes of the Irish Neolithic, bioarchaeology, mortuary archaeology, experimental archaeology, and the postmodern theoretical perspective. My historical research focuses on the Celtic revival and the professionalization of the discipline of archaeology at the turn of the 20th century, and my public history experience is focused on collections management and public interpretation in all its forms.

Advisor: Dr. Bettina Arnold
