Matt brings two decades of experience to the Circle team, having worked in Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories in a wide range of environmental zones. His Masters research involved the analysis of distribution patterns of tipi rings and other sites near medicine wheels in southeast Alberta, and, notably, he led the excavations of the Hardisty Bison Pound and an associated campsite that was determined to be among the most important Avonlea sites on the Northern Plains. Matt has led excavations of over a 1,000 square metres in Alberta, and probably participated in 1,000 more. We are excited to have him join our team as he works on his Ph.D., and we’re hoping he brought his luck with him! Fun fact: he doesn’t like winter archaeology. But who does?!
