Dr. Peacock is a native of Choctaw County, Mississippi. He worked as an archaeologist in the private sector and for the U.S. Forest Service before joining the MSU faculty in the fall of 1999.


He is an evolutionary archaeologist, a theoretical stance that is ideal for anyone interested in understanding the intersections between nature and culture and how each is shaped by the other over time. His research interests are centered on long-term human/nature interactions, including documenting and quantifying prehistoric human environmental impact. He specializes in the analysis of molluscan remains, especially freshwater mussel and land snail shells. This can be used to provide information on past environmental conditions. Mussel shell can be used for a number of other purposes as well. He is developing a method for sourcing shell-tempered pottery though the chemical content of shell temper particles, using a Laser Ablation-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometer. He is also working with biologists to conduct biogeographical research on original mussel ranges and species abundances using archaeological shell, providing information useful for conservation efforts today.


In addition to his work in environmental archaeology, he is concerned with how cultural resource management, or CRM, is practiced. This concern arises from his previous employment with a CRM firm and the U.S. Forest Service. Commercial archaeology is the main arena for M.A. students seeking jobs, and it allows for many sites to be recorded and excavated that otherwise would be destroyed. But, because of the business-oriented nature of CRM, many practices have evolved that create biases in what is considered to be significant in scientific terms. He is working on a number of projects involving graduate students that seek to demonstrate how CRM could be improved through a better appreciation of variability in the archaeological record, something of utmost importance from an evolutionary perspective. Recognizing and sampling variability is critical if CRM is to fulfill its promise of salvaging information in a manner suitable for all future generations of archaeologists and the public who funds us.


Other research interests include developing new methods for microartifact analysis and understanding formation processes and their effects on archaeological sites. He has found and recorded over one thousand archaeological sites, and has conducted excavation at sites of various sizes and ages, including the Mississippian-period Lyon's Bluff site in Mississippi and the Poverty Point site in Louisiana. He is pleased to include students in his research, and has co-authored a number of papers with both undergraduate and graduate students.


Archaeology and Biogeography of Prehistoric Freshwater Mussel Shell in Mississippi

Peacock, Evan
Publisher: Archaeopress
2011
ISBN: 1407308742
Collaborators: Cliff Jenkins, Paul F. Jacobs, and Joseph Greenleaf
Series: British Archaeological Reports International Series

"The southeastern United States is home to the richest, most diverse freshwater mussel faunas on the planet, and Mississippi is no exception in this regard. Until fairly recent times, however, only qualitative lists of taxa were available and/or sampling was unsystematic and spotty. More recent work has taken place in waterways that have been significantly impacted by erosion, other forms of water pollution, and impoundment in modern times. Thus, even the best modern studies could benefit from a better knowledge of ranges and community characteristics as they existed prehistorically, when human impact, though present, an[d] to this end this work presents a robust synthesis of pre-industrial mussel distributions and relative abundances in the state."



Time's River: Archaeological Synthesis from the Lower Mississippi River Valley

Peacock, Evan
Publisher: University of Alabama Press
2008
ISBN: 9780817354893
Collaborators: Janet Rafferty

This volume stands as a key general resource for archaeologists working in the region extending from Louisiana through Mississippi north to Missouri and Kentucky, and it represents an opportunity to influence for decades a large part of the archaeological work to take place in the Southeast.



Mississippi Archaeology Q & A

Peacock, Evan
Publisher: University Press of Mississippi
2005
ISBN: 1578067669

Mississippi Archaeology Q & A is written for the general public, for a wide range of ages. It answers many of the questions commonly asked about prehistoric and historic artifacts, questions such as, "How do you know where to dig?", "How do you know how old it is?", and "Can the government take my stuff away?" The book is useful for teachers, artifact collectors, high school and college students, landowners, and anyone with an interest in Mississippi's prehistoric and historic past.



Blackland Prairies of the Gulf Coastal Plain: Nature, Culture, and Sustainability

Peacock, Evan
Publisher: University of Alabama Press
2003
ISBN: 0817312633
Collaborators: Timothy J. Schauwecker

Taking a holistic approach, this compilation gathers ecological, historical, and archaeological research written on the distinctive region of the Southeast called the Gulf coast blackland prairie. Ranging from the last glacial period to the present day, the case studies provide a broad picture of how the area has changed through time and been modified by humans, first with nomadic bands of Indians trailing the grazing animals and then by Euro-American settlers who farmed the rich agricultural area. Contemporary impacts include industrialization, aquaculture, population growth, land reclamation, and wildlife management.
This book demonstrates that the blackland prairie has always been an important refuge for a teeming array of biological species, including humans. It will have wide scholarly appeal as well as general interest and will be welcomed by archaeologists, biologists, botanists, ecologists, historians, librarians, politicians, land managers, and national, state, and local administrators.
