This past fall, Digital Antiquity had the opportunity to work with a new student intern, Lauren Tennison. As part of her internship, Lauren helped with adding content to tDAR for the Digital Archive of Huhugam project as well as learning skills in curation and redaction of archaeological reports. We are so happy to have had Lauren on board!

Fort Vermilion, Alberta, 2018

Name: Lauren Tennison

Position/Title: Digital Curation Intern

Degree: Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in anthropology with a concentration in archaeology at Arizona State University.

Previous Work Experience/Research Focus: I excavated, surveyed, and did research at a Colonial era fur trading site in Alberta, Canada.  I also excavated and surveyed at a few Hohokam sites in Phoenix, Arizona.

Favorite Places to Travel to: My grandmothers in Cottonwood, Arizona and anywhere new.

Fun fact: I graduated with an Associate of Science degree from Weatherford College, Weatherford, Texas.  Then, I transferred to Arizona State to get my Bachelors of Business in Global Logistics Management.  After a few semesters of that I realized where my real passions were and changed majors.

Favorite Collection: I’ve really enjoyed working on DAHA, the Digital Archive of Hohokam Archaeology. I love seeing how widespread their empire was.
