Congratulations Tatyanna Ewald!


Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Ewald successfully defended her Masters thesis, “Dental Polish as an Indicator of Seasonality and Applications to Archaeological Bison from Southern Alberta”, on Friday, August 10. Supervisor: Brian Kooyman.

Tatyanna developed a new analytical technique to identify the season and duration of occupation of archaeological sites employing the polish that develops on the teeth of grazing animals. She tested her technique on two archaeological sites from southern Alberta, including material excavated by our Department Archaeological Field School at the Cluny site.

Thanks also to the defence committee, Dr. Dale Walde and Dr. Charles Mather, as well as the Neutral Chair Dr. Mary Pavelka, for their contributions and support. 

Great job Tatyanna!
