David Maxwell began his academic career as a student at SFU, receiving BA and MA degrees in archaeology. He completed his doctorate in anthropology at the University of Arizona, studying things as diverse as ancient Maya ritual behaviours (his dissertation topic), paleoanthropology, the analysis of animal bones from archaeological sites, and even historic artifacts such as beer cans.
