He currently has a book, entitled "The Moorehead Circle: A Timber Post Ceremonial Complex at the Fort Ancient Earthwork", which is pending publication. During the 1980s and 1990s he was appointed by Ohio Governors to the Ohio Historic Site Preservation Advisory Board, which nominates historic sites and properties to the National Register of Historic Places.

Dr. Riordan received a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology and anthropology from Colgate University in 1968, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Southern Illinois University in 1975. He has been a Registered Professional Archaeologist since 1999.
