Mark Warner is an historical archaeologist with over twenty years of experience in archaeology. He has worked in many parts of the U.S. and conducted major excavations in Maryland, Oklahoma (in collaboration with the Miami Nation) and in the Inland Northwest. He is currently working on the Sandpoint Archaeology Project, an extensive archaeological and historical study of the early settlement of Sandpoint, Idaho and the largest excavation in the history of the state of Idaho. His research interests include zooarchaeology and foodways and archaeologies of inequalities. In 2009 he was elected to serve as a member of the board of directors for the Society for Historical Archaeology.
When not obsessing over various archaeology-related topics Warner is fixating on the current state of Detroit’s professional sports teams and the well-being of Michigan athletics in general. He is originally from Michigan and is married to Amy Grey (Executive Director of Backyard Harvest). They have two children, Tom and Sam.
