Research Statement

My research will focus on the Admiral’s/Fort Point site in Trinity Newfoundland. Using the artifacts recovered from previous excavations, archival research, and comparative study I seek to develop a better understanding of the daily life of soldiers during this period as well as understand the role that this site had in the community and the military history of Newfoundland. The site will also be mapped using a drone in order to gain a better understanding of the fortifications. I also plan on employing 360 degree photography and 3D modeling to document the various features.
