    ABOUT OUR SPEAKER - Bob Genheimer

    I am a lifelong Cincinnatian. I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in anthropology from the University of Cincinnati, and have been an archaeologist with Cincinnati Museum Center since 1990. I served as Archaeological Collections Manager for nearly 11 years, acting Curator of Archaeology for two years, and was named George Rieveschl Curator of Archaeology in April 2003. In these roles I have undertaken the processing and cataloguing of more than three hundred thousand
    artifacts in our collections. I also supervise all of the archaeology and ethnology volunteers — operating the archaeology laboratory, facilitating research on the collections, conducting field research into both prehistoric and historical archaeology and publishing the results in public and private venues. My research interests are in prehistoric and historical archaeology. My focus on prehistoric archaeology includes
    Late Prehistoric and Hopewell-age studies, as well as investigations into lithic technology. My interests in historical archaeology include the study of privies and urban and industrial sites, particularly nineteenth-century potteries.
