Robert M. Schoch: Site Map

Last updated December 2018, this site map is intended to help visitors navigate this website and investigate content posted to it. (Banner image: John Anthony West and me [Robert Schoch] in 2010, headed to Göbekli Tepe in Turkey for the first time. Katie took the photo, with a smile on her face at the two of us befuddled. She's much better with directions.)


Important and timely announcements, plus a few "notes to visitors" that I wish to impart.


A brief biography, plus a few photos – to offer a little information about my education, publications, interests, awards, etc. (What is posted on Wikipedia, for instance, seems biased, unfair, and contains factual errors -- including a completely incorrect birth date for me.)


For those who perhaps are unfamiliar with my work, posted here are some highlights. My books, of course, contain more detailed discussions, and I do recommend them.

Rising from the Ashes of SIDA [Solar-Induced Dark Age]. This article brings together many aspects of my work over the last quarter century – into an unintended summary of sorts.

A little bit about my wife, Catherine Ulissey, and how we met.


See here for various ways I can be contacted, if necessary. For professional correspondence only please! I state clearly on this page that I regrettably have no time for casual correspondence. I mean no offense; there are just simply not enough minutes in a day. So if you do write and I do not respond, please do not take it personally. This was a tough decision that had to be made. I appreciate your understanding.
