Research/Special Interests

Dr. Nicklas’ interests are wide and varied, but focus primarily on Old and New World Archaeology as well as paleo archaeology. When teaching he utilizes an extensive collection of archaeological and paleontological fossils and artifacts to provide the students of UNG with a hands-on learning experience. When studying field archaeology he uses old field notes, power point presentations made from original photos, and appropriate artifacts. As a result, his classes rely much less on traditional text books and much more on lectures, artifacts, photographs, and other support materials.
