Thomas J. Green is the Director of the Arkansas Archeological Survey. An independent unit of the University of Arkansas System , the Survey is a statewide research, public service, and education institution with 11 research stations in Arkansas. Prior to assuming this position in 1992, Green was the State Archeologist and Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer in Idaho, where he was in charge of Section 106 review and National Register programs. Almost all of his research results from the salvage of archeological sites not protected by state or federal preservation laws. His principal publications deal with Mississippian settlement patterns, southern Idaho pit houses, Idaho grave sites, NAGPRA and CRM. Green received a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Southern California in 1968 and a Ph.D. in anthropology from Indiana University in 1977. Due to his administrative duties with the Survey, Green teaches only one class in cultural resource management. He does serve on graduate committees.
