We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Dr. Lindsay-Amundsen-Meyer to our department! Amundsen-Meyer is our new Archaeology Field School Director and Instructor.
Bio: Dr. Lindsay Amundsen-Meyer has more than 10 years of experience working with Historical Resources in Western Canada, in the academic, cultural resource management and government sectors. Her expertise lies in the archaeology of the Canadian Plains and adjacent Rocky Mountains, landscape archaeology, and spatial analysis in archaeology including use of geographic information systems. Lindsay has directed a multi-year research project on the Southern Alberta Plains and worked on archaeological investigations in the Plains, Rocky Mountains and Boreal Forest. This work has included directing and managing several large excavations in southern Alberta as well as directing large and small scale survey programs throughout Alberta and British Columbia, many of which have included First Nations engagement. Lindsay has been involved in diverse projects related to a variety of historical resources, including archaeological sites, standing historic structures, cultural landscapes and scared places/place names. Lindsay completed both her Bachelor’s and Doctoral degrees at the University of Calgary, during which she studied both archaeology and museum and heritage studies. Her doctoral research focused on examination of settlement patterning, cultural landscape and place names along the Old North Trail in Southern Alberta. Lindsay has a special interest in fostering public awareness of the history of Alberta and the archaeological resources of this province. To this end, she involved volunteers throughout her dissertation fieldwork, has been involved with public archaeology programs and First Nations Field Skills Training programs conducted by Lifeways, and has made numerous public presentations on archaeological projects she has directed.
We look forward to working with Lindsay in the years to come. Please join us in welcoming her (back) to our department!
