About

I am a graduate student studying archaeology at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. My research specialty is lithic technology (stone tools), with a focus on microblades and experimental archaeology. Basically, I make ancient tools and then use ’em to see what they were or weren’t good for. I’m currently investigating the development of microblade technology (tiny little sharp bits of rock- think stone exact-o blades) about 9000 years ago on Haida Gwaii. Things are going smoothly, but not that quickly. With a thesis deadline looming and writer’s block exerting its vile influence on my rate of completion, I have decided to get my verbal juices flowing with some online musings and observations on archaeology, technology, flintknapping, and how I see the world.
