(Ashland, Ore.) — Dr. Mark Tveskov, professor of anthropology and director of the Laboratory of Anthropology at Southern Oregon University, has been appointed by Governor John Kitzhaber to the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation.

The committee, which is comprised of members with backgrounds in anthropology, history, architecture, archaeology and other related disciplines, is tasked with reviewing nominations to the National Register of Historic Places.

“Collaboration and stewardship with our communities on issues of historic preservation are foundational concepts we hope to teach in our classes,” Dr. Tveskov said, “so I am greatly honored to have this opportunity to serve on this committee.”

Dr. Tveskov has been a faculty member at SOU since 1998. He is a member of the Society of American Archaeology, the Society for Historical Archaeology, and the Association of Oregon Archaeologists.

“We have wonderful faculty at Southern Oregon University, and we’re very pleased that Dr. Tveskov will be able to share his expertise in a manner that benefits the entire state,” said Dr. Roy Saigo, SOU President.

The advisory committee next meets Oct. 9-10 in Newport.
