I completed an MA in Archaeology from Simon Fraser University in 1983 and a PhD in Anthropology from McGill University in 1990. Prior to accepting a faculty position at the Brantford Campus, I worked as a Regional Archaeologist, Central Region, Ontario Ministry of Transportation for 10 years, directing archaeological work on proposed highway corridors.
My long-term and current research interests are the archaeology and history of Iroquoian-speaking peoples in Ontario, particularly the Wendat and Haudenosaunee. Ongoing research projects include the historical archaeology of Six Nations and Mississauga in the Grand River Valley, archaeology of the Huron-Wendat in Simcoe County, and the history of the Bushmen in the Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
