Caitlin Gilbertson- Archaeologist

Caitlin Gilbertson- Archaeologist

Growing up overseas, Caitlin always had an interest in history and different cultures, but never considered this as leading to a possible career path. With the intention of becoming a marine biologist, Caitlin began college on the coast of North Carolina, where she mistakenly ended up in an advanced archeaology class in her freshman year. After that single class, marine biology was no longer an option. Caitlin now holds a Master of Science degree in Osteoarchaeology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology. After graduating from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a B.A., she moved to Scotland to attend the University of Edinburgh to expand her knowledge of archaeology and explore her love of history. She now specializes in human remains within the realm of archaeology, and has a strong working knowledge of osteological material. Caitlin is currently serving as the Archaeologist for eleven Kwajalein Atoll islands leased by the Department of Defense within the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and she also serves on the board at the Marshallese Cultural Center and Museum on Kwajalein Atoll. She received her PADI Open Water diver certification in 2017, and has progressed from there to certifications in PADI Advanced Open Water diver, PADI Enriched Air/Nitrox abd PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle.
