Working in archaeology since 1989, and at the ARC since 2000, Mr. Hansen has been responsible for coordinating the formatting and production of well over 50 archaeological reports, many of them being multivolume efforts.  Most of these dealt with surveys and excavations conducted in California, the western Great Basin and the Mojave Desert.  Mr. Hansen was involved in both the field and laboratory work as well as the report production for the PGT/PG&E project (Shasta, Siskiyou, and Tehama Counties), the Tuscarora Pipeline (Modoc and Lassen Counties), and the Alturas Intertie project (Modoc and Lassen Counties).  He has also participated as an archaeological field and laboratory technician on many projects, including jobs in Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Mono, Inyo, Mendocino, Napa, Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Amador, Placer, Sacramento, Tuolumne, Solano, and Yolo counties, which gives him an added perspective for the production of reports.

William Norton serves as Field Director, co-Laboratory Supervisor, and obsidian hydration laboratory Coordinator for the ARC. Entering archaeology in 1988, he joined the Center in 2002. Norton’s experiences span most of California (including projects in 43 of the 58 counties), Nevada, Oregon, and western Utah.  He is versed in cultural resources regulations, preparing dozens of reports and report sections to support Environmental Assessments, Environmental Impact Statements, and Environmental Impact Reports.

 

Mr. Norton’s wide ranging archaeological experience includes specialization in invertebrate faunal analysis, obsidian hydration, and projectile point studies.  In fact, his master’s thesis focused attention on regional similarities of corner-notched dart forms in the Sierra Nevada.  Beyond advancement of these research areas, his interest is in teaching students, particularly in implementing field procedures in an efficacious manner.
