Stella Johnson, Archaeological Technician
Hi my name is Stella Johnson, I started with In Situ Archaeology in September 2021, I am now an archaeological technician.
I’m 19 years old and First Nations. It’s really interesting learning about new things and finding cool artifacts from our ancestors!

Gemma Tarling, BA – Archaeologist
Gemma received her BA in Anthropology and Environmental Studies from the University of Victoria in the summer of 2021. Her research interests drew her towards Archaeology and Ethnoecology as topics and she came to value community-based participatory research methods. She was grateful to participate in Iain McKechnie and Denis St Claire’s Historical Ecology and Coastal Archaeology field school in 2019 and Darcy Mathews’ Ethnoecological Field Methods class in 2021.
The more she hones her knowledge of Northwest Coast Archaeology the more she is humbled by just how much there is to learn, which is why she’s excited to wake up and see just what will unfold at work each day. When she’s not in the field Gemma can normally be found outdoors; however, it’s as good a guess to say that she’s in the garden out back as to say that she’s halfway up a rockface calculating the next move.
