Many department graduate students have initiated independent research projects after visiting Range Creek and have presented the results of these inquiries at conferences and seminars.
Personal information[ edit ] Kelly was born on March 16, in Connecticut. From a very young age, he wanted to move west. Kelly has two sons, Dycus and Matthew. Kelly enjoys skiing, playing piano, and traveling when time permits.
When teaching, his goal is to show the students the process of archaeology and how much scraps of bone or broken stone tools can teach us.
After graduating from Cornell, he moved west to continue his studies at the University of New Mexico where he received his MA in Much of his work and research was centered on the Great Basin and he spent over a decade working on sites and projects in Nevada.
Inhe earned his doctorate from the University of Michigan with a dissertation on mobility and sedentism of hunter-gatherers. He has authored over publications. He and David Hurst Thomas have written an introductory textbook titled Archaeology that is widely used in many colleges and universities.
Diversity in Hunter-Gatherer Lifeways, published inis considered to be a landmark in anthropology. In the book, Kelly points out that lifeways among foraging societies were quite diverse. From tohe was the coordinator of the Archaeology program at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.

Research emphasis[ edit ] Kelly has shaped and contributed much to our understanding of hunter-gatherer societies.
Current understanding of hunter-gatherer mobility and foraging patterns are also influenced strongly by his research, fieldwork, and ethnology. By examining the Pleistocene colonization of the Americas by examining artifacts and lithic technology, Kelly reconstructs past life-ways and compares them to current foraging societies, and examines human adaptation to climate change during different periods in the past.
Kelly is also interested in improving and fine-tuning archaeological practice. He has successfully challenged the preconceived notions of what it means to be hunter-gatherer through his research with the ethnographic record.
Kelly is also conducting fieldwork and research on why so few fluted points are found in caves and rockshelters. Selected books and monographs[ edit ] Doing Archaeology Robert L. Kelly and David H.
