Fraser Neiman is an archaeologist and Director of Archaeology at Monticello. His research interests include archaeological theory, quantitative methods, and the historical archaeology of the Chesapeake. His published research encompass diverse topics including the collapse of Classic Maya civilization, prehistoric group interaction in the upper Mississippi valley (BC 200-AD 600), and social relations in the 17th-century Chesapeake. Current research projects include the social dynamics behind consumerism, landscapes, and slave quarter architecture in the 18th-and early 19th-century Chesapeake.
