Joanna Berry, our guest for November 17th’s meeting’s BIO:
I earned my B.A. in Anthropology at the University of Western Ontario (UWO), where I had the opportunity to study under such prominent Great Lakes archaeologists as Dr. Michael Spence and Dr. Chris Ellis. I first trained in archaeological field methods at the Lawson Site, a prehistoric village once occupied by Neutral Iroquoians in the 16th century. After completing my undergraduate studies, I began working in the field of contract archaeology (also known as ‘cultural resource management’). Over the years, I have participated in the mitigation or relocation of a variety of heritage sites, including native villages, stone tool production sites, pioneer homesteads, pioneer cemeteries, and the burial site of two hanged men. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Anthropology at UWO.
Come out and enjoy this as well as a mini-workshop in characterization by Barry Brewster.
