Walk with Me: Reflections on Almost a Lifetime with Dr. James Skibo

Author(s): Autumn Painter; Jeffrey Painter

Year: 2019


This is an abstract from the "Archaeological Method and Theory: Papers in Honor of James M. Skibo, Part I" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

During this paper, we will reflect on the impacts that Dr. James Skibo has had on our lives and careers. From childhood to graduate school, Dr. Skibo has been a major influence on how we think about and approach archaeological research. Thanks to his Yooper wisdom, he has also taught us many life lessons, such as the value of duct tape and a proper appreciation for a good axe. While we have both graduated from Illinois State University and are now working on our Ph.D.'s at Michigan State University, Dr. Skibo continues to influence our research and thinking, and we will always be thankful for the mentorship that he has, and continues to, provide.
