We are proud to welcome Eliann Stoffel to the Atlheritage Team!
Eliann completed her B.Sc. (Hon.) and MA degrees in Archaeology at the University of Saskatchewan. She specializes in Plains Archaeology with a focus in zooarchaeology and has worked on large-scale projects in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta.
Her master’s thesis conducted a taphonomic analysis on the remains of the Kyle Woolly Mammoth to determine if humans hunted or scavenged it. Evidence for the involvement of humans in the demise of the Kyle mammoth could not be concluded; however, a pathological lesion was discovered that suggested this particular animal had at least one bout with malnutrition in its lifetime.
