Welcome to the home page of Scott E. Simmons.  I am an Associate Professor of Archaeology in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.  I joined the Department of Anthropology at UNCW in August 2001.  Prior to coming to UNCW I directed the Greater New Orleans Archaeology Program, a public archaeology program at the University of New Orleans.  I earned my doctorate in Anthropology at the University of Colorado in Boulder in 1996.  Currently I am Principal Investigator for archaeological research at Lamanai, a large Maya site in Belize.  I also conduct archaeological research on African and African-American life at southern plantations in the United States.  My office is in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Building, Room 103.  I can be reached at 910.962.3429 or at simmonss at
