Archaeologist Dr. Mark Aldenderfer, the MacArthur Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Merced, has spent his life investigating the origins of settled village life, human adaptation to high altitude environments, hunting, and gathering, and early plant and animal domestication. Dr, Aldenderfer’s work encompasses the sites of Asana, Qillqatani, and Jisk'a Iru Muqu, and survey projects in the Osmore valley of Peru, and in river valleys in the Lake Titicaca Basin, as well as projects in Ethiopia, the US, and Tibet, where his research on Buddhist and pre-Buddhist occupations in the Himalayas have elucidated the fascinating cultures of this region.
