The scale and volume of the work completed by our firm over the past 25 years has led us to the inescapable conclusion that the archaeological record of Ontario is as intriguing as that of any other part of the world. It has also lead us to realize that, despite all of the research that has been completed by academics, avocationals, and cultural resource management firms, we still know very little about most periods in our province's past. It is essential, therefore, that we do not content ourselves with conserving archaeological sites through salvage excavation, and the preparation of reports that will languish on government shelves.
Rather, we believe that we are obliged to disseminate the results of our work, as often as we can, to our colleagues, the descendants of those whom we study, and the general public.
Many members of our staff have strong records of presenting the fruits of our research in a variety of forms, such as scholarly and general interest books and articles, public and academic lectures, public displays, and the news media. They are also active participants in professional organizations such as the Ontario Archaeological Society, the Canadian Archaeological Society, the Society for Historical Archaeology and the Society for American Archaeology as well as in other heritage organizations such as the Canadian Association of Professional Heritage Consultants where they can bring some unique perspectives based on their archaeological expertise.
