Bioarchaeology field school

The UNB Bioarchaeology Field School is a unique hands-on excavation experience at the Fortress of Louisbourg, an 18th century National Historic Site.

You will have the opportunity to address ongoing erosional issues at the Fortress of Louisbourg by actively excavating and analyzing the individuals interred at Rochefort Point. 

The Northeastern Archaeological Survey

The Northeastern Archaeological Survey is a collaborative effort among archaeologists at the University of New Brunswick, the University of New England, and the Canadian Museum of History. We collaborate with a number of Indigenous and community partners and other academics. Our program includes extensive graduate and undergraduate research and training.

Our research applies state of the art research methods to document the archaeological history of the Northeast. Currently, our work focuses on coastal sites that are threatened by coastal erosion and developing strategies to prioritize and salvage sites.


We maintain different labs for research and teaching purposes.
