About Joe Jefferson

I’m an anthropologist living in Reno, Nevada. My master’s thesis was titled, The Archaeological Investigation of Gardening at the Historic Railroad Station of Kearsarge, California. My professional interests including mining and railroad archaeology, and understanding interactions between different cultures – especially in ethnohistoric contexts. I also have somewhat of an interest in the mostly speculative field of exoarchaeology, and the (for now) completely speculative field of xenoarchaeology.

I’ve been a Christian since 1983, the result of a supernatural encounter.

My wife Catherine is a has her own business in the field of computer security. Fortunately she enjoys exploring ghost towns, ruins, and rock art sites almost as much as I do. (I love you Honey!)
