Jim Shropshire's interest in archaeology began in the early 1960's when he was living in Creemore. Jim met local farmers who often turned up artifacts in their fields and archaeologists visiting the area. Eventually, with his local knowledge as an asset, he worked for the Ministry of Lands and Forests, later the Ministry of Citizenship & Culture and on various archaeological sites in Huronia and southern Ontario. He's been a long-time member of the OAS, and served as President of the Toronto Chapter in the 1990's. He is currently a Huronia Chapter member and is presently conducting research at Sainte Marie I.
At 7pm on Wednesday, September 11th in the Thompson Room at the North Simcoe Recreation and Sports Centre, Midland, Ontario.
