Carter has participated in major excavations ranging from Cahokia Mounds, Illinois to Laugerie Haute, France. Much of his career has focused on the ancient Near East. In the late 1970s, he spent three excavation seasons at Tell Hadidi, Syria, site of a Bronze Age city on the Euphrates River. Since 1980, he has been connected with the American expedition at Hierakonpolis, Egypt, a major center of predynastic development. In addition to field excavation, Carter has been heavily involved in technical studies on Egyptian mummies, and he was project director for “Temples, Tells and Tombs”, a major Milwaukee exhibition on ancient Near Eastern and Classical civilizations.
