Flint Knapping at UCD Archaeology Field School, 2010 I originally came to Davis in 1995 as a Native American Studies Major at UC Davis. After a brief (13 year) break from my studies, I have returned to UCD as an Anthropology Major.

Most days, however, I am busy being a General Contractor, remodeling peoples homes. I own my own business, Brian Barbier Remodeling, and my shingle has been hanging in Davis for the past 7 years. Thus, going back to school has been limited to a part-time endeavor.

Someday I will actually make a 28" obsidian wealth blade. This one was made by Grog. My favorite hobby is Flint Knapping, the art of making tools such as arrowheads out of stone. Hopefully this will also describe what I hope to be doing in my future career in archaeology (after a few years of Grad School, of course).

I also like volunteering for Whole Earth Festival, playing paintball, hiking, camping, and spending time with my wife and daughter.
