    ​Peter G. Roe, Ph.D., Professor, University of Delaware, trained first as an artist and scientific illustrator, eventually receiving his Ph.D. in anthropology in 1973 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since 1969 he combines archaeology and ethnology in his research on Caribbean and South American Indians, with a special focus on the interrelationships between art style, society and ideology. He has worked in the highlands (Chavín de Huántar-archaeoastronomy and iconography, Formative Period) and lowlands (Cumancaya, Upper Ucayali, Late Prehistoric archaeology) of Peru, and on both sides of the Amazon basin (Shipibo, Peruvian montaña / Waiwai, Upper Essequibo, Guyana) studying art, ceremony, ethnoastronomy, ethno-archaelogy, and oral traditions. Between 1978-1985 he was also a Visiting Professor, Centro de Estudios Avanzados de Puerto Rico y el Caribe, Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, teaching in Spanish, and was, for fifteen years (1985-2000) the Curator of the Centro de Investigaciones Indígenas de Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR. He continues to research the prehistory of the Greater Antilles (Puerto Rico and eastern Hispañola) from the Saladoid (500 B.C.) to the Chican Ostionoid (1500 A.D.) periods in ceramic age archaeology, with a focus on pottery, wood, bone carving analysis and rock art iconography. He is the author of 100+ publications, including two books, two monographs, 23 chapters in edited books, and has presented 60 professional papers at national and international conferences.
