The Untapped Potential of Legacy Collections: Ongoing Zooarchaeological Research at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM)
The Department of Anthropology at UTM houses substantial archaeological collections resulting from past research, field school, and CRM excavations throughout southern Ontario. This includes numerous large samples of faunal material that have previously been subject to only minimal analyses. In this presentation, Dr. Orchard will provide an overview of his ongoing research aimed at completing more detailed analyses of many of these collections, providing insights into past subsistence and economic activities at individual sites. In addition, these data and collections are increasingly contributing to collaborative projects which are providing fascinating insights into regional patterns in subsistence economy and historical ecology, using modern analytical techniques including GIS analysis, and analyses of stable isotopes and ancient DNA.
