Location matters a great deal in archaeology, but the concept of what constitutes a prime location changes over time as different groups with different perceptions, resource needs, or technologies occupy any particular area. Santa Fe is one of those unique places in which a constellation of physical factors have enabled people to live and prosper for literally thousands of years. Dr. Shapiro has taught a variety of anthropology and archaeology courses at the Santa Fe Community College, Santa Fe School of Art and Design, New Mexico Highlands University, and the Renesan Institute for Continuing Education.
