INTRODUCTION - Dr. Christopher Moore joined the Savannah River Archaeological Research Program staff in 2008.  Dr. Moore received a B.S. in Anthropology from Appalachian State University in 1997;  M.A. in Anthropology from East Carolina University in 2000 and a Ph.D. in Coastal Resources Management (with a focus in Geoscience) from East Carolina University in 2009. Dr. Moore’s research interests include geoarchaeology, luminescence (OSL) dating, hunter-gatherer archaeology, Late Quaternary climate and human adaptation, GIS, and remote sensing. Dr. Moore is currently involved in several projects that involve the interested public in archaeological research on Carolina bays within the CSRA as well as a project to locate prehistoric quarries within the South Carolina Slate Belt for geochemical analysis and sourcing.  Dr. Moore is also involved in the Tar River Geoarchaeological Survey (an ongoing collaboration between the SRARP and East Carolina University) with the sole purpose of the research being to examine linkages between paleoclimate, human adaptation and site formation processes within shallow aeolian and fluvial landforms along the Tar River in the upper Coastal Plain of North Carolina.
