Kevin Vaughn

Kevin Vaughn has worked in Peru since 1996. He received his PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara. His research interests include the origins of inequality, the political economy of middle-range societies, household archaeology, ancient mining and metallurgy, craft production, and archaeometry (especially LA-ICPMS, INAA, and stable isotopes). In addition to Peru, he has also worked in Ecuador, the American Southwest, the Great Plains, California, and Germany.

After completing his last project in 2007, he is moving on to other research projects in the Nasca region. These will include an investigation of ancient mining in the region and looking at the long term settlement history of Nasca. You can find summaries of these projects by clicking the "Projects" tab above.



The Department of Anthropology offers an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Anthropology with an archaeology emphasis. Click here for more information. NOTE: if you are interested in applying to the graduate program to work with Dr. Vaughn, it is imperative that you contact him as early as possible in the application process.
