Dr. Shawn Bubel, Associate Professor
Shawn Bubel has worked on archaeological excavations across the world, including Israel, Turkey, Egypt, Poland, Belgium, and Canada. Her current field projects are at the Fincastle site in southern Alberta, a bison kill site dated to 2,500 years ago, Fort Vermilion in northern Alberta, one of earliest fur trade sites in the province, and Tel Beth-Shemesh in Israel, an ancient city that was occupied from 1,800 to 635 BCE. Shawn’s research focuses on the site formation processes and geoarchaeology at these and other sites, but she conducts lithic and faunal analyses well. In addition to teaching the more ‘traditional’ classroom-based courses, Shawn teaches students how to carry out field and laboratory research.
