Paul D. Jackson, RPA, has over 30 years of experience in the field of Cultural Resource Management, participating in hundreds of projects across the Southeast. As an Owner and Senior Archaeologist for TerraX, he oversees all phases of archaeological investigations, specifically focusing on Late Woodland cultures across the Southeast. In the past three years, Mr. Jackson has been Principal Investigator for six Phase III data recovery mitigations across the Southeast. These excavations included Fort Butler, a Civil War Fort, a sugar mill plantation main house complex, an antebellum sugarhouse, and a 12.5-acre Coles Creek site in Louisiana. He also mitigated a historic homesite in Alabama and a Paleoindian-to-Mississippian site along the Cumberland River in Tennessee.

Throughout his career, Mr. Jackson has directed and managed intensive surveys with sites up to 50,000 acres and overseen survey, testing, and excavation projects in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Mr. Jackson has worked with numerous federal agencies, including the National Park Service (NPS), United States Army Corp of Engineers (USACE), and Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and has facilitated consultations with Federally Recognized Tribes. Under a three-year contract with Fort Moore (previously Benning), he oversaw the monitoring program for the base, which consisted of inspecting known previously recorded sites, accessing their condition, and making sure protective measures were put in place for each site. This included sites on the main base, sites on islands, and inundated sites. Mr. Jackson received his B.A. and M.A. in Anthropology from The University of Alabama.
