Timothy R. Pauketat is an Anthropology Professor and an archaeologist with the Illinois State Archaeological Survey at the University of Illinois. His research focuses on ancient intersections of humanity and history as understood through the materials, substances, other-than-human beings, and phenomena of urban experience, particularly in pre-Columbian North America. The author or editor of a dozen books, Tim has over 25 years of field experience in North American archaeology, with a focus on the development of the singular American Indian city of Cahokia, near St. Louis. His current research includes data-rich studies of agrarian settlements, climate change, religious practices, and political administration up and down the Mississippi River a thousand years ago.
