George Bey is Professor of Anthropology at Millsaps and also serves as the Associate Dean of International Education. He teaches a broad range of archaeology and anthropology courses, from the Archaeology of Ancient Egypt to American Popular Culture. His area of research interest is Mesoamerican Archaeology, the analysis of prehistoric pottery and the evolution of complex societies, such as the Maya and Toltecs.

Since 1984 he has directed field projects in the Yucatan, first at the Maya site of Ek Balam and since 2000 at the site of Kiuic. Kiuic sits amidst a 4000 acre biocultural reserve created with the support of Millsaps College, offering students unique opportunities to study Maya archaeology as well as the flora and fauna of the tropical forests of Yucatan. In addition to Anthropology and Archaeology, Dr. Bey enjoys reading science fiction and watching the New Orleans Saints, especially when they beat Green Bay.
