Brian Bates – ’92 Anthropology & Political Science

Dr. Brian Bates

Professor of Anthropology, Longwood University

Executive Director & Senior P.I. – Institute of Archaeology

After graduating from Longwood in 1992 with a double-major in Anthropology and Political Science, I received my Master’s degree and PhD in Archaeology from the University of London (specifically University College London – Institute of Archaeology).  Since 1994 I have been teaching at Longwood University and conducting field archaeology projects.  In 1997 I became the director of the Dr. James W. Jordan Archaeology Field School. I have led numerous projects in the Southeastern United States as well as in the British Virgin Islands and I co-teach the Archaeology of England course with my friend and colleague, Dr. Jordan.  From 2006-2015 I was Chair of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice Studies.  In October 2015 I founded the Longwood Institute of Archaeology and serve as its Executive Director and Senior Principal Investigator.  The mission of the Institute is to empower undergraduates through life-changing experiences in archaeological field research
