How to find us M.I. (Matilda) Siebrecht

Research interests

I am currently researching organic (bone, antler, and ivory) tools from the Dorset Culture of the Canadian Arctic, with a focus on microwear analysis is order to determine methods of manufacture and practices of use assocaited with the artefacts. This analysis will then provide a greater understanding of the interactions, learning processes, perceptions of value, and social practices of the Dorset.
