Terry P. Brock is the Senior Research Archaeologist at The Montpelier Foundation, and received his PhD from Michigan State University in Anthropology. He has worked in archaeology in Michigan, Maryland, and Virginia, with a particular interest in plantation archaeology. He became interested in Richmond Archaeology in 2014, when he relocated to the City. His interest was sparked following the Revitalize RVA proposal, and learned that the City of Richmond had very little in the way of protections for cultural resources or an active research program. His Blog Post, “Below the Bottom” addressed a series of concerns with Richmond’s approach to development in regards to archaeological mitigation, and sparked a conversation about the importance of archaeology in the City. Since that time, he has been part of the forming of RVA Archaeology, serving as a co-founder and steering committee member.
