DUNCAN CALDWELL

I have excerpted a few words from Mr. Caldwell’s website.

His stories and photos are fascinating and so interesting I can not adequately describe how much fun it is to dig into his postings!

Please check it out – prepare to be amazed!

Dear Mr. Caldwell, I wish I could have the opportunity to visit with you in person!

Duncan Caldwell

My passions range from my family, writing, painting, photography and prehistory to the designing of integrated complexes of gardens and buildings.  This website contains descriptions of  – or links  to -  my work in each of the following fields:

– peer-reviewed scientific papers,

– renderings and photos of building projects,

– novels, screenplays, and poetry

– short works of non-fiction, including Part I of my father’s biography, and

– paintings & photo galleries.

The site also contains information on:

– archaeological tours and lectures

– pictures of little-known works of prehistoric art, and (eventually)

– videos, a blog, and more.
