BU Students help record/photograph artifacts – Rural Museum Archaeological Outreach Project

The final report for the Rural Museum Archaeological Outreach Project is now available. The project was a collaboration between Dr. Mary Malainey (Brandon University Anthropology), the Manitoba Archaeological Society (MAS) and the Association of Manitoba Museums (AMM). As part of the project, four Brandon University students travelled to rural museums in Neepawa, Killarney and Carberry. They identified and analyzed over 1,700 pre-contact artifacts and enhanced artifact displays.
