Cultural Resource Management Archaeology in the Maritimes

This talk will present the process of cultural resource management in the Maritimes through the staged approach of archaeological assessment. Involving Mi'kmaw engagement, background research, and fieldwork, archaeological consultants assess and provide recommendations on management of our region's cultural resources.

Robert has been a member of the team at Cultural Resource Management Group Ltd since May of 2011.
