Daniel Herman Weiskotten. Born Cazenovia, NY, 2/12/1960.  I received my MA (Archaeology and Public History, with focus on Northeast Woodlands/Iroquois and Museum Management) from SUNY at Albany in 1997, BA (Anthropology) from SUNY at Albany in 1991, and AA (Natural Resources Conservation/Journalism) from SUNY Morrisville in 1988. I have been active in cultural resource management since 1985 and have conducted extensive historical research projects in many areas of New York, Maryland, and Vermont. Professional positions held include Project Director at the Public Archaeology Facility from 1995 to 1998, and research and field positions with other Cultural Resource Survey firms in New York and Maryland. In 1989 and 1990 I was an Intern at the New York State Museum, Office of History Survey, and in 1991 and 1992 was a Crew Director at Dr. David Starbuck's field schools at the French and Indian War encampment at Fort Edward, NY and the Revolutionary War fortifications at Mount Independence at Orwell, VT.  For the Public Archaeology Facility I was a Project Director and conducted historical research for numerous projects including Site Examinations at an Archaic site in Otsego County, a Late Woodland Iroquois site in Tompkins County, rural farmsteads in Broome, Chenango, and Ontario counties, and 19th century industrial sites in Onondaga, Oswego, and Monroe counties. I have authored various other projects under PAF's state-wide highway subcontract with the New York State Museum and NYSDOT, and for private contracts. From 1983 to 1989 I was the appointed Municipal Historian for the Town of  Cazenovia, Madison County, NY, and I still conduct in-depth research on the history of this beautiful community.  While still in NY I was an active member of the Beauchamp and Chenango Chapters of the New York State Archaeological Association, Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum, a member of the Mount Independence Coalition, and a corresponding member of the New York Archaeological Council.  Since my recent move to Richmond, VA, I have become an Associate Member of the Council of Virginia Archaeologists, am a volunteer at the Valentine Museum.  Presently I am undertaking several studies of my own initiative including 19th century book publishers of Cazenovia, NY, 19th century population, health, and mortality demographics; rural cemeteries and burial patterns; cabinet makers; historical geography and land use patterns; and tombstone carvers of southern Central New York 1800-1850.  Many of my compiled works and research papers involve my home town of Cazenovia, NY, and are available on-line on my history web pages.
