Dr. Martha Latta recently retired from the University of Toronto, Department of Anthropology, will be presenting a discussion on the Huron sites and the collections housed at the University of Toronto on Thursday April 8 , 2010 at 7 pm at the Huronia Museum, Little Lake Road Midland. This is being sponsored by the Huronia Chapter and the Huronia Museum.
Dr Latta is no stranger to the archaeology of Huronia having spent many field seasons at the Auger site, Robitaille site, Thompson/Walker site, Beeton site and other sites. Dr. Latta has carried out extensive research into many aspects of Huron prehistory including settlement patterns, ceramic studies, copper-based artifacts studies and gender studies all pertaining to the Huron/Ouendat cultural developments of the past 900 years. It should prove to be a very interesting presentation and the public is invited to attend.
We encourage the practice of ethical archaeology in the discovery of the history of Huronia (northern Simcoe County) through archaeological research and discussion of the historic record and oral tradition. Please feel free to comment and or join and post on the blog. Blog contents do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Ontario Archaeological Society or the Huronia chapter.
