Sarah A. Morris

Archaeologist, Sarah A. Morris

Sarah’s adventures have taken her all over the world including Scotland where she graduated with a postgraduate degree in Archaeological Practice from the University of the Highlands and Islands. Sarah has participated in several exciting excavations including the world famous Ness of Brodgar excavation located in the heart of Orkney’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sarah was not only the first American to attend UHI’s Orkney College, but also the first to be invited to dig at the Ness of Brodgar.

After spending several years honing her skills in both Rescue and Public Archaeology in the Kansas City area, Sarah has moved to Asheville, NC where she brings her entrepreneurial experience as well as her love for all things historical and scientific to AMOS. As part of the Visitor Experiences Team, Sarah works diligently in supporting daily museum operations and educational programs.

In addition to her work and friends, Sarah enjoys exploring the mountains of Western North Carolina and rock-hounding with her dogs Doyle and Ollie. When not in the museum or hiking, you can often find her participating in Pub Trivia competitions throughout the city or volunteering at Black Mountain’s VFW Post 9157 every Wednesday night as its Poker Tournament Director.
