In this report, Burnett discusses her experiences as an intern with the Museum of the Ontario Archaeology, and the opportunities she received taking part in the Vindolanda Field School. Having worked in the heritage field in various capacities for six years, Burnett found it to be immensely valuable to build upon her skills of research, critical thinking, and collaboration. Specifically, in the case of archaeology and museum-based conservation, Burnett focused her analysis on the differences between the practices in Ontario and in England as she experienced them at a variety of institutions and sites. Aside from this, the informational and communication interplay between the active facets of conducting an archaeological excavation and museum curatorial practices, and how they both hinge on the public engagement.


This report was submitted in conjunction with a PowerPoint presentation as the final assignment for SASAH's Experiential Learning requirement.
