Dr. Moore has worked as a professional archeologist since 1976.  He was a pioneer in demonstrating the potential for survival of significant archeological remains in heavily urbanized American contexts such as the City of Galveston and the Houston Central Business District, as well as in developing the archeological field methods appropriate for dealing with urban contexts. His work and publication in urban archeology began during his graduate studies at Rice University and has continued throughout his subsequent career. Dr. Moore is also keenly interested in spatial relationships and developed a quantitatively based predictive model for prehistoric settlement in Southeast Texas that has been acknowledged as accurate by the Archeology Division of the Texas Historical Commission. Dr. Moore’s presentations and peer-reviewed publications in recent years have centered upon MAC's conflict archeological discoveries at San Jacinto.
