Katherine Parker is a PhD student in Anthropology at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.

Additional research interests include the archaeology of Anglo-Native interactions in the colonial Chesapeake, the material culture and built landscapes of Contact-period conflict, and Industrial landscapes in the Southeast. Katherine is involved in several public archaeology projects in the Southeast, which include coordinating and teaching non-credit courses in archaeology, conducting ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys of abandoned cemeteries with local community members, and collaborating with indigenous groups in the Chesapeake to conduct GPR surveys of tribal lands. Her hobbies include biking, board games, and checking out local distilleries on the weekend.
Originally from Spartanburg, Katherine graduated with her Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology with distinction in Archaeology from the University of South Carolina in 2014. She has more than eight years of experience in CRM across the Southeast and Midwest that include traditional and geophysical survey methods.
