Callum Thomson, a graduate of the University of Calgary (B.A. Hons., Archaeology) and Bryn Mawr College (M.A., Anthropology) is an archaeologist specializing in circumpolar cultures. He has spent more than 30 years undertaking field research in the Canadian Arctic and Subarctic and for the past 15 years has served in the off-season as lecturer and guide on small expedition cruise ships in the Arctic, North Atlantic and Antarctica.
Ken holds B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in geology from the University of Durham, England and has worked for more than 40 years in the international oil and gas exploration industry. He has long held an interest in the Arctic and Far North since he worked on geological field parties in the Canadian High Arctic and in Alaska in the 1970s.
My research interests lie in Arctic Archaeology, the digital preservation of polar heritage at risk, and the visualization of archaeological data using 3D Computer Modeling, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality. I work closely with Dr. Richard Levy, Faculty of Environmental Design, and a variety of others in industry and engineering.
