Welcome Meghan Marley, the newest member of the Archaeology Team!
We are pleased to announce that Meghan Marley has joined the Archaeology team as Collections Assistant. Her primary responsibilities will include conducting field investigations at our sites and collections care duties.
Meghan has had an interest and curiosity in ancient civilizations and history since early childhood. This interest led her to earn a BA in History with minors in Latin and Classical Civilizations at Denison University. During the summer of her senior year in college, Meghan attended an archaeological field school at a medieval castle at Walhain-saint-Paul in Brabant, Belgium. This experience inspired her to pursue a career in archaeology and led her to earn a MA in Classical Archaeology from Florida State University (with a focus in Etruscan and Roman archaeology).
After attending two more field schools in Salemi, Sicily and in Milan, Ohio, Meghan pursued a career in Cultural Resource Management (CRM) working as a field technician throughout the Midwest. She also assisted the Cleveland Museum of Natural History with their summer field school for three years at the Heckelman Site and at Burrell Orchard as an assistant supervisor.
Her involvement with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History encouraged her to pursue a career in museums. This led to her volunteering in the archaeology department of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History as well as a collections internship at the Firelands Historical Society. In 2014, Meghan received her MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University.
Welcome Meghan, we look forward to working with you!
