Christiane Cunnar received her M.A. in anthropology from the University of Wyoming with her thesis on the taphonomy of a bison bone assemblage from an Early Archaic bison kill site. Christiane has participated in archaeological projects in the High Plains and Great Basin of the U.S., as well as projects in Volga region of Russia, Siberia, and Shandong Province of China.
In 1997 she started working for Human Relations Area Files as a research associate, and subsequently was appointed as member services coordinator, a multi-faceted position. She has co-authored Teaching eHRAF, an online student workbook. As an avid user of eHRAF World Cultures & Archaeology, she enjoys helping scholars in getting the most out of these unique cross-cultural databases. Chris is currently based in Germany.
In her leisure time, Chris enjoys anything outdoors, but especially hiking, cross-country and downhill skiing, camping, and horseback riding.
