The Little Things

Author(s): Matthew A. Cox

Year: 2017


"It’s the little things…" this often-used quote sums up one of the most important things that I learned while working with Dr. Scott.  Whether it was taking the time to show us how to properly sharpen our trowels during an excavation, reminding us to double check our data, and to make sure to keep artifacts together by their respective proveniences when in the lab, each of these little pieces of advice helped to shape my own career. I find her advice on the little things coming back to me at the most random times when faced with challenges during my own projects, and have a better understanding and a great appreciation for her persistence on making sure the "little things" were always done.
