Event Description

Historical Archaeology explores the stories and lives of past people since the time of European contact using material culture, historical and other documents and ethnohistory. Dr. Kennedy will give an illustrated survey of the various kinds of historical archaeology done in Saskatchewan over the past century and the rich stories of the province’s past that have emerged from that important work. We will look, for example, at the archaeology of the fur trade, Indigenous and Métis sites, early settlement and homestead sites, industrial sites and other sites representative of the past 250 or so years of Saskatchewan history. Margaret Kennedy recently retired from teaching Archaeology in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Saskatchewan but continues to be active in the archaeology of the northern plains. She now holds an Adjunct Professor position with the Department, keeping up her involvement with graduate student supervision and research there. Her specializations in Historical Archaeology over the past 43 years include the archaeology and history of the buffalo robe (“whiskey”) trade, the mining towns and industries of the Crowsnest Pass, buffalo hunting Métis winter camps, early homestead sites and urban archaeological sites. She also has experience in pre-contact archaeology and for the past seven years has been studying the rich ceremonial stone feature landscape of the Forks of the Red Deer and South Saskatchewan rivers with colleague Dr. Brian Reeves. Everyone welcome!
