Darryl Bereziuk, Director, Archaeological Survey of Alberta. 

An MA graduate of the University of Alberta, Darryl Bereziuk is the director of the Archaeological Survey of Alberta. He specializes in archaeology within circumpolar and cultural resource management contexts. Much of his 25 year career was devoted to contract archaeology in the private sector. Darryl relies upon this real world experience in managing Alberta’s archaeological resource management programs.

We will be hosting a Departmental visit by Darryl Bereziuk, who is the Director of the Archaeological Survey of Alberta. The Survey plays a very important role in the wider archaeological community in Alberta. They regulate archaeological work, and determine who is qualified for permits, which plays an important role in the careers of graduates who go into Alberta CRM.

During his visit, Darryl will present an open lecture on the past and future of Alberta heritage management. Lunch will be provided, and there will time for discussion, followed by a less formal opportunity to meet with Darryl at the Last Defense Lounge (LDL).

The visit is a great opportunity to meet the Director and hear about the Survey’s perspective on Alberta archaeology. Participation will be especially beneficial if you anticipate a career in Alberta archaeology, but anyone with interest in heritage is encouraged to attend.

This seminar is especially targeted for students, but all are welcome. 

If you are a planning to attend the colloquium please RSVP to so we can estimate numbers for lunch.
