Press Releases

Danielle R. Cathcart joined RGA as the material culture analyst in October 2017. Ms. Cathcart received a B.A. in Anthropology from the College of William and Mary in 2009 and began her archaeological career at Werowocomoco in Gloucester County, VA, the capital of the Powhatan confederacy during the Early Contact Period and the site of the legendary interaction between John Smith and Pocahontas. Her experience in the Mid-Atlantic also included an internship at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and a fellowship at the Fairfield Foundation, site of a seventeenth century plantation occupied by members of Virginia’s planter elite and hundreds of enslaved African Americans. At Fairfield, Ms. Cathcart cultivated an interest in the material culture associated with enslaved African Americans by studying the occurrence of colonoware throughout the plantation landscape. In 2010, she entered cultural resource management as a field archaeologist in New England, and transitioned into the laboratory where she became proficient in prehistoric and historic artifact identification, collections curation and management, and database development. Ms. Cathcart’s interests include advocacy for the rehabilitation and use of existing collections in new research, urban archaeology, and historical waste management practices at the municipal and household levels as they relate to notions of health and hygiene. She is eager to contribute to RGA’s mission in her capacity as the material culture analyst, as well as in other supportive roles including research, report writing, and laboratory management.
