NYC, London, Cairo – 7th April 2013 – We are proud to announce that Professor of Anthropology, Archaeologist and Military Historian, Dr. Mark Schwartz is the latest signing to Past Preservers People.
Currently an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Grand Valley State University, Mark’s passion for presenting archaeology and history to the public can be seen through his various media work and publications.
