Julia King, professor of anthropology, is featured on the National Humanities Alliance website.  

 

According to the website, “since 2001, Julia King and a consortium of researchers have been advancing the archaeological study of the region through digital methods, collections-based research, and more traditional field excavations. Their work has made archaeological data more accessible to researchers and students and yielded new insights into colonial and pre-colonial history. It has also had an impact on Native American tribes who still live in the region.” Read more here: https://nehforall.org/projects/documenting-chesapeake-history

 

An initiative of the National Humanities Alliance Foundation, NEH for All is a focused examination of National Endowment for the Humanities grantees across the nation. 

 

King, in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (DHR), Chesapeake Conservancy, and the state-recognized Rappahannock Tribe of Virginia, was awarded a $240,000 grant in 2019 by the NEH to trace the history and development of the Rappahannock Indians in early American history (200-1850 AD).
