Bryan Kresie, member #1186, started out relic hunting and metal detecting as a kid, which evolved into a history degree with an anthropology minor. In between teaching in Korea, he took a job as a contract archeologist conducting surveys in burn areas in southern Idaho where he hiked 10 to 12 miles a day looking for artifacts/sites before seeding.
Bryan serves in Civil Affairs for the United States Army Reserve and teaches social studies to middle school students. He is an avid hiker and peak-bagger. He is also heavily involved in the management and conservation of the enormous number of artifacts and exhibits at the Adventurers’ Club of Los Angeles.
