Peter Quantock has worked with me for two years. He has taken a lead role in the Port Tobacco project, supervising, drafting, cataloging, etc. His first GAC projects were shovel testing a field overgrown with poison ivy and briers in 95 degree heat and 80% humidity, and monitoring cable installation for endless weeks at Greenbury Point, just outside of Annapolis, typically in cold, rainy weather. He persevered.

Most of our readers will know Pete from his work at Port Tobacco and as frequent contributor to this blog. He has been responsible for the work at the so-called Native American locus at Port Tobacco.

When Pete manages to escape the tyrannical direction of his supervisor (me), he often turns to the great outdoors. Here are a couple of pictures of Pete in his off hours on land and on sea.

Pete earned his baccalaureate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, majoring in Ancient Studies. He has worked in Spain and traveled extensively around the world. He aspires to an advanced degree in anthropology or history.
