Avi Buckles, Director of Cultural Resources, has been an archaeologist in the private sector since 2000 when he started working on cultural resources management projects throughout Arizona and New Mexico. Avi began his career at WestLand in 2004 and was appointed as an Associate to the leadership team in 2016. Avi moved to Arizona in 1996 to attend the University Of Arizona Anthropology program and, after graduating, worked on dozens of archaeological excavation, survey, and construction monitoring projects on both prehistoric and historical sites. He subsequently became a field director and project manager for WestLand, with a research focus on historical archaeology and Southwestern mining and ranching history. Avi received his graduate degree in History from Arizona State University in 2017, and has directed numerous small and large survey and data recovery projects as well as public outreach assignments in Arizona and New Mexico. His passion is mining history, and Avi has produced detailed mining landscape studies and multi-media public presentations that integrate field archaeology, archival research, and oral-history to help manage legacy mining operations. From small development projects to large complex data recoveries, Avi is able to combine his business skills, archaeological knowledge, and attention to client and agency needs to successfully manage cultural resources projects.
