Robin Beck is an assistant pro-
fessor of Anthropology and serves
as the assistant curator of the Uni-
versity's Eastern North Ameri-
can Archaeology in the Museum
of Anthropological Archaeology.
Since 1994, he has been involved
in the excavation of the oldest
European settlement in the United
States, located i in North Carolina.
He is the author of three books
based on his work in thefield.
Why do you study
archaeology? Why should
people be interested in
In archaeology, we try to
understand what it means to be

human by looking across long
periods of time, and trying to
understand over these long peri-
ods of time how what it means to
be human has changed. You can
see just looking over the last 5,000
years or the last 10,000 years
over the world just how much
our modern civilization is based
on things invented or developed
5,000 or 6,000 or 7,000 years ago.
Different peoples coming togeth-
er to live in the first villages or the
first cities; people planting and
learning how to domesticate the
first things like wheat and maize
and barley and oats; domesticat-
ing cattle and dogs and sheep.
All of that is a part of our ancient
human heritage that makes our

world go around now.
How is your research in North
Carolina going?
We've been focused on an
archaeological site in North
Carolina that contains the ear-
liest European settlement ...
After about 20 years of looking
for it last summer, we actually
found the fort itself. This coming
summer, I'm aiming to have an
archaeological field school, a Uni-
versity of Michigan field school at
the buried site where I'm hoping
to bring 12 undergraduates down
to the site to work on excavating
some of this burned fort.

mechanical engineering and applied mechanics and

Monday at Palmer Commons.

Parades, cultural festivities Lieutenant Governor discusses

proceed despite tension

statewide financial turnaround

Guinness and NYC
mayor boycott
celebration due to
exclusion of gays
NEW YORK (AP) - A week-
end of St. Patrick's Day revelry
and tensions over the exclusion
of gays in some of the celebra-
tions culminated Monday in
New York, where the world's
largest parade celebrating Irish
heritage stepped off without
the city's new mayor and Guin-
ness beer amid a dispute over
whether participants can carry
pro-gay signs.
The parade of kilted Irish-
Americans and bagpipers set
off on a cold, gray morning.
Hundreds of thousands of
spectators lined Fifth Avenue,
but the shivering, bundled up
crowd was only about half as
thick as in previous years.
Revelers also gathered

elsewhere for green-themed
celebrations, including some
400,000 locals and tourists in
Dublin, where gay rights groups
took part in the festivities.
De Blasio held New York's
traditional St. Patrick's Day
breakfast at Gracie Mansion
with the Irish prime minister,
Enda Kenny, but boycotted the
parade because organizers said
marchers were not allowed
to carry gay-friendly signs or
identify themselves as lesbian,
gay, bisexual or transgender.
Weeks ago de Blasio said he
would skip the parade over the
issue, but Guinness abruptly
dropped its support a day before
the event. The Dublin-based
company pulled sponsorship
assets, including on-air
presence, parade participation
and any promotional materials
that weren't already printed,
although the beer maker
had already made a payment
to parade organizers,
spokeswoman Alix Dunn said.

Other beer companies took
part in the boycotts, with
Samuel Adams withdrawing its
sponsorship of Boston's parade
and Heineken also bagging New
York's parade because of the
exclusion of gays.
Roman Catholic Cardinal
Timothy Dolan, who greeted
passing dignitaries in front of
St. Patrick's Cathedral wearing
a woolen Irish cap over his red
cardinal's skull cap, said he
supports the participation of
individual gays and hoped St.
Patrick's Day could be a day of
unity and joy.
"I know that there are
thousands and thousands of
gay people marching in this
parade," he said. "I know it. And
I'm glad they are."
Police Commissioner
William Bratton marched with
a contingent of uniformed
officers. Gay activists protesting
the exclusion of official LGBT
groups held a news conference
before the march to say they
didn't think the NYPD officers
should participate in uniform.
About two dozen gay rights
advocates protested the parade
holding placards high enough for
marchers to see. "If Danny Boy
were gay, would he be welcome
today?" read one.
Protester Richard Lynch wore
a Guy Fawkes mask, which was
popular among members of the
Occupy Wall Street movement.
He said de Blasio should have
ordered the police commissioner
not to march.
"This was a big mistake,"
Lynch said. "It says the mayor
isn't serious about LGBT
inclusion in this parade."
Across the Atlantic in the land
that inspired St. Patrick's Day,
hundreds of thousands of people
crowded the center of Dublin for
Ireland's major parade. The hour-
long procession featured loads of
wit, brightly colored costumes
and dancers, including from
Ireland's gay community- and
nobody had a public word to say
about it.

Calley addresses
state growth rate
in event hosted by
College Republicans
Daily StaffReporter
Simultaneously lamenting
the broken Michigan of the past
and hailing its bright future,
Lt. Gov. Brian Calley spoke to
the University's chapter of the
College Republicans on Monday
night about rebuilding the state
into a beacon of growth and
Serving as the youngest
lieutenant governor in the
state's history, Calley works
as the second in command to
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder.
Calley presides over the
Michigan Senate and assists the
governor in day-to-day actions.
"We went from being a rich
state to being a poor state in just
ten years," Calley said, focusing
on the economic doldrums
between 2001 and 2011.
"What we see now is a return
to the attitude that we used to
have, the spirit that really drove
our state to the top," he added.
"In the last three years, we find
ourselves a top ten state in our
per capita income growth rate."
Calley said the real estate
market in Michigan is on the
rise, as is the expansion of
business. These improvements,
among others, have allowed
the government to exceed
University economic forecasts
three years running, he added.
Another element of Michi-
gan's economic turnaround,
Calley said, has to do with fos-
tering a positive atmosphere
within the state. He said if citi-
zens believe Michigan can come

back from being the "center of
the economic demise," it will.
Calley said Michigan has his-
torically been a bastion of inno-
vation, home to Saran Wrap,
Kitty Litter and a once-thriving
automobile industry. He added
that changing the world is "in
our DNA," and a return to this
climate is not distant.
"Our strategy is, 'How do
we create an environment for
success around the people that
are already here?' " he said.
"We want you to have the best
possible chance of success.
Whatever it is that you want to
do with your life, we want this
to be the best place to do it."
Contingent on this success,
Calley said, is reminding
students in particular that
Michigan is indeed on the
upswing. Part of this has to do
with seeing bankruptcy as a
force of good rather than bad.
"Bankruptcy is not the
problem; bankruptcy is the
beginning of the solution to the
problem," he said.
Despite this, Calley told stu-
the state are complaining that
they can't find qualified people
to fill positions - the Michigan
Talent Portal has approximately
60,000 open jobs currently.
"So that's incumbent upon
us to make sure that our
education is providing people
with relevant skills to fill those
jobs," he said. "But what we're
finding, unfortunately, is that
it's kind of hard to convince
college graduates that part of
their search ought to be here."
Calley also discussed college
affordability, saying one method
of decreasing the price of higher
education will be giving high
school students the opportunity
to get college credit before they
leave high school.
He encouraged students to

take community college courses
in their senior and junior years
of high school because dual
enrollment courses could ulti-
mately reduce the amount of
time spent at a four-year insti-
tution and in doing so, reduce
the cost of a college degree by25
percent or more, he said.
The University and Michigan
State University do not currently
accept dual credit, which Calley
said he and Snyder are working
to change.
In the meantime, a highlight
of the duo's most recent budget
increases public university
funding by 6.1 percent.
However, this allocation is
only available on a condition of
tuition restraint.
"We expect them to use that
money to make the college
experience more affordable,"
Calley said.
Business senior Michael
Proppe, Central Student
Government president, attended
the meeting and said he was
encouraged by Calley's words.
"The Snyder administration's
proposed increase in higher ed
funding is very important, and
I am glad Brian Calley touched
on that tonight," Proppe wrote
in a statement after the event.
"That said, there is still a lot of
work to do to make college more
affordable, both on the part of
the state and the University."
LSA senior Russ Hayes,
College Republicans chair,
added that he hopes Calley's
tenacity as Lieutenant Governor
spurs others to activism.
"Not only is he a dynamic
politician, he really inspires a
lot of people," Hayes said. "(He
is) someone who really fires
up people our age. He brings
the personal experience and
the economic experience and
the dynamism that comes with
being a young Republican."
