Christina Callisto - Treasurer
Christina grew up in a Central New York State town settled in 1788, surrounded by the Mohawk Nation and historic forts and battlefields. She graduated from the University at Buffalo (UB) where she was just one ancient language class away from completing a double major in Classical Archaeology and Anthropological Archaeology, complete with a field school which focused on Late Iron Age through Viking Age settlement patterns at Thy, Denmark, as part of the Thy Archaeology Project.
As part of her 10 year CRM career, she has experience conducting Phase IA (background research), Phase IB (survey), Phase II (evaluation) and Phase III (data recovery) of prehistoric and historic sites across New York, Vermont, Florida, and Nevada. Notable sites she worked on in the Northeast include War of 1812 Sackets Harbor battlefield at Fort George and Revolutionary War Fort Ticonderoga, where she was able to locate the powder magazine identifying the location of the original French Fort Carillon which sustained damage to that same magazine during the French and Indian War.
While in Florida, Christina worked as a Staff Archaeologist which included researching, excavating, and recording prehistoric, historic, and military sites, historic aerial photograph and satellite imagery analysis, artifact curation, laboratory assistance, library administration, research working closely with the Florida SHPO, the State Archives of Florida, the Archive and CEVSH of Eglin Air Force Base, and the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin Air Force Base, as well as authoring and editing reports for government and private clients. All of this culminated in experience with Paleolithic through twentieth century homesteading sites, naval stores operations and stills, and WWII to Cold War-era military sites.
After moving to Nevada, Christina has worked for the Nevada SHPO and
Desert Research Institute. She has been part of the NAA since 2013.
