Matt brings two decades of experience to the Circle team, having worked in various environmental zones in Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories. His Master’s 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 essential Avonlea sites on the Northern Plains. Matt has led over 1,000 square meters of excavations in Alberta and probably participated in 1,000 more. Fun fact: he doesn’t like winter archaeology. But who does?!
