Selen Barré BSc

Staff Archaeologist

Selena discovered archaeology in 2013 at the Boyd Archaeological Field School. She subsequently pursued a degree at Trent University and graduated in 2018 with an BSc in Anthropology with a minor in Biology, focusing on archaeology. While completing her degree at Trent, she was involved in the lab, working primarily with lithic material from Jacob’s Island.  Selena worked in the zooarchaeological processing lab at Trent under Eugene Morin, creating specimens for the reference collection. She also worked with James Connolly on the Nassau Mills field school, a late nineteenth century industrial site. From 2015 to 2018, Selena worked in the CRM industry as a field and lab technician and report writer. During this time, she was exposed to a wide range of sites, including the Perth Gaol, a nineteenth century jail, which included a significant Archaic site within its grounds. She has also worked on a wide range of historic sites, from early rural homesteads to the location of Ottawa’s original roundhouse.
