Dr. Anthony directed archaeological excavations at dozens of Native American prehistoric sites from Massachusetts to Virginia before becoming the
Anthropology Curator at the Yager Museum of Art & Culture in 1987. Since then he has directed a series of archaeological projects in the steppes of Russia and Kazakhstan, gaining an international reputation as an expert on the domestication of the horse and the origins of horseback riding. His primary duties are as a professor in the Anthropology Department, but he also curates new exhibits from the Anthropology collections at regular intervals. Recent exhibits included a display on the Colonial Contact-period Indian town of Onoquaga on the Susquehanna River and selected Southwestern baskets from the Yager collection. His current project is an exhibit of the Amazonian ethnographic collections of Ralph Sandell.
