PhD Proposal defence: Adrian Morrison, 27/11/2015

Adrian Morrison will be defending his PhD proposal on Friday 27th November at 3:15 in QC-2013, entitled 'Merchants, Migrants, and Military Men: An Archaeology of Life in Early Eighteenth-Century Canso, Nova Scotia'.

Adrian's  research examines an early eighteenth-century fishing and trading settlement located on the Canso Islands in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia. In the 1720s and 30s, Canso emerged as an influential English fishing and trading community with far-reaching connections across Europe, and the Americas. His research looks at social structure and class division among the Islands’ inhabitants and situates the frontier outpost within broader historical and geographical contexts.
