Margaret Weide Lyneis - Archaeologist, Professor, Mentor, Student, and Friend

Author(s): Laureen Perry

Year: 2018


Dr. Margaret Lyneis had a long career as an archaeological researcher, preservationist, and scholar, starting with field research in the 1960s when few women were in the field and as a professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Early research was in the Warner Valley of Oregon, in California, and in the Great Basin. As she focused her research on Far Western Puebloans, Dr. Lyneis became the expert on their early occupation of southern Nevada and the Virgin Region. Her influence on the world of archaeology extends far beyond that research as her students and colleagues continue applying her approaches, professionalism, and passion to other archaeological topics, careers, and advocacy. This symposium barely touches the extent of Margaret Lyneis’ influence on archaeology.
