Congratulations to Dr. Alexis Dolphin for receiving a Canadian Foundation for Innovation – John R. Evans Leaders Fund grant ($233,000) in support of her work founding the “Ancient and Contemporary Environmental Bioindicators Laboratory (ACEBioLab)” in the Department of Anthropology. 

On Thursday, October 9, 2014, Dr. Robert Park delivered an exciting public lecture in the ML Theatre of the Arts entitled, "Finding Franklin's Ships and other remnants of the 1845 Northwest Passage Expedition."

This lecture was video recorded and can now be seen on YouTube below.


The Department of Anthropology's very own Dr. Robert Park and Dr. Douglas Stenton played a pivotal role in the recent historical discovery of the HMS Erebus.

See today's Waterloo Record for more on Dr. Park's role in the discovery:
