Dr. George Hambrecht

Dr. George Hambrecht is an Assistant Professor of Archaeology in the Anthropology Department at the University of Maryland College Park, USA. His research focuses on the zooarchaeology of the Norse North Atlantic with a focus on changing terrestrial and marine ecosystems and the dynamics between these and human settlement. He is currently developing a collaboration with Dr. Nicole Misarti of the University of Alaska Fairbanks to investigate the paleoecology of the North Atlantic through stable isotope and aDNA analysis of the remains of cod family species as well as a variety of other near shore species. The goal is to couple the existing archaeological record for Iceland more closely with marine paleoecological proxy data in order to examine the changing dynamics between people and marine ecosystems over the last millennium. Dr. Hambrecht has also collaborated with the US Park Service Climate Change Adaptation Coordinator for Cultural Resources, Dr. Marcy Rockman, in the creation of the US Cultural Resources Climate Change Strategy. He has been an active member of the NABO cooperative for the last 15 years. Dr. Hambrecht has worked on field sites in Iceland, Norway, the United States and the Caribbean.
