Christina Robinson

Project Coordinator and Research Assistant

Christina_Profile

My name is Christina Robinson and I undertook my BSc in Archaeology at Bournemouth University, which was followed by a successful career as a professional archaeologist for 11 years in the UK excavating and recording sites from the Mesolithic to WWII. I then moved to Canada to undertake my MA in archaeology, which employed three non-intrusive survey methods to identify potential dwellings at the Dorest Palaeoeskimo site of Phillip’s Garden, Port au Choix National Historic Site.

I have two roles in the CARRA project. First, I manage the day-to-day activities of the project, and second, I carry out some of the research, performing site surveys, literature reviews and report writing. Myself, Marc Storey and Ariel Pollard-Belsheim conducted the first field season of the CARRA project, on the Northern Peninsula in September 2013 visiting both the Port au Choix National Historic Site and L’Anse aux Meadows.
