In Memoriam

Dr. Wesler at Backusburg, KY (2015)It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Dr. Kit Wesler, Director of MARC, Department of Geosciences Graduate Student Coordinator, and Director of Wickliffe Mounds for many years. Dr. Wesler was a great advocate for the use of technology, especially in the field of archaeology. He was enthusiastic about the employment of drone technology for site mapping, the use of LiDAR for site detection and evaluation, and a strong advocate for giving students hands-on field experience. Dr. Wesler took many students to field schools in Jamaica, and throughout western Kentucky, providing them valuable opportunities to enhance their knowledge. MARC was fortunate to have such an estimable colleague, mentor, and friend. Dr. Wesler will be missed.
