Mark Moak

Biography

Under the auspices of the British School at Athens, Mark has worked at and for the Minoan excavations at Palaikastro, Crete, since the late 1980s. This has led to numerous professional and public lectures and presentations at home and abroad. Mark has brought these experiences into the classroom as well as taken students abroad to participate in foreign study tours. Mark has been a member of the faculty at Rocky Mountain College since 1987.

Mark has also spent the past 25 summers staffing fire lookout towers in Arizona and Idaho for the U. S. Forest Service with his wife, Rhett, and is a drummer for the MidLife Chryslers.
