Gary Brewer has been a professional archaeologist since 1983, working as a consultant for over ten years before becoming a cultural resource manager for the province of Saskatchewan. He returned to heritage consulting after moving to British Columbia 12 years ago. Two years ago he joined the Archaeology Branch of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations. He graduated from the University of Calgary in 1985 (BA in Archaeology) and the University of South Carolina in 1987 (MA in Public Service Archaeology).

Iain McKechnie is a coastal archaeologist interested in the history of food and settlement as a medium for understanding human-environmental relations on the Pacific Northwest Coast. He is a specialist in zooarchaeology (the archaeology of animal bones) and historical ecology (contextualizing modern ecosystem observations with those from well before the 20th or 21st centuries). He is also keen on cartography, visualization of archaeological data, and digital archaeological techniques and technologies.
His research focuses on the human use of animals, with a particular concentration on fish, shellfish, and marine mammals along the British Columbia Coast. He explores how these ancient records broaden contemporary perspectives on present day resource management challenges and the legacy of Indigenous settlement, use, and care for coastal environments.
