Nathan Lawres

Dr. Nathan Lawres is an archaeological anthropologist focused primarily on the Precolumbian Southeastern United States. The primary focus of my research is in South Florida, specifically in the northern Everglades. It is here that the Mayaimi and Serrope, associated with the Belle Glade archaeological culture, lived, dwelling in a largely aqueous landscape. My research on the Belle Glade archaeological culture addresses multiple anthropological concerns. On a broader scale, I am interested in the ways that people interact with and live within their environment, which is related to numerous facets of human culture. My most recent research delves into how the ways people understand their lived world or reality (i.e., ontologies) affects the ways they live within and interact with that world. This, in turn, leads to specific cultural practices that are visible in the material record. Additionally, my research interests involve the intersections of archaeological practice and planning and development. I am currently involved in a project with colleagues aimed at evaluating ways we can shift the priorities afforded to archaeological and other cultural resources to increase the preservation of those resources for future generations. Dr. Lawres is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Director, Antonio J. Waring, Jr. Archaeological Laboratory at the University of West Georgia.
