Anthropologist David C. Grove has been named the 2008 winner of the American Anthropological Association’s Alfred Vincent Kidder Award for Eminence in the Field of American Archaeology. The award honors his 45-year career in Mexican archaeology and is one of the highest honors in the field.

A courtesy professor of anthropology at UF, Grove is also the Jubilee Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois. He received his Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1968 and his teaching positions have included stints at the State University of New York, Binghamton and California State University, Northridge.

Grove’s research has been focused primarily in central Mexico’s Preclassic period, 1500-500 B.C. He is best known for his work at the sites Chalcatzingo, Morelos, and Oxtotitlan cave, Guerrero. He has also carried out research at Tlatilco culture sites in Morelos, at Olmec sites on Mexico's Gulf coast, and at sites on the Pacific coast of Oaxaca. His interests range from settlement and household archaeology to formative period iconography.

He is a member of the American Anthropological Association, Society for American Archaeology, and the Sociedad Mexicana de Antropologia. He served as president of the Archaeology Division of the American Anthropological Association from 1992 to 1993, and was a member of the AAA Executive Board from 1990 to 1993. He serves on the editorial boards of the Middle American Research Institute and the journal Ancient Mesoamerica.

Grove will be presented with the Kidder medal at the American Anthropological Association’s annual meeting in San Francisco in November.  For more information visit http://www.aaanet.org/sections/ad/awards.html#Kidder.
