The Museum of Ontario Archaeology welcomes Archaeologists Ontario Doug and Dr. Lucy Troweler, who will be spending the summer exploring the museum along with their trusty assistants Dusty and Teabiscuit.
Ontario Doug first became interested in human history when his class took a field trip to the local museum. His mom sent him to archaeology camp that summer after he dug up the backyard looking for ancient artifacts. He was hooked! After attending multiple universities in Ontario, he became an archaeologist with his trusty assistant Dusty, the famous race horse – who became famous when he stopped mid-race to protect ancient artifacts on the race track.
Dr. Lucy Trowler has been studying and teaching about archaeology all her life. As a child, she taught everyone in her kindergarten class the proper way to dig in their school’s sandbox and lead her Grade 3 class on an exploration of the school’s playground. She met up with her assistant Teabiscuit during one of many archaeological field schools that she participated in while going to university.
The foursome will be sharing their experiences at MOA along with more about how they became passionate about archaeology throughout the summer.
