This session will honour the contributions that Jack Brink has made to archaeology in Alberta and across the Northern Plains. Jack’s commitment to research, collegiality, and humour have infused his roles as former Head of the Archaeological Survey of Alberta, Curator of Archaeology at the Royal Alberta Museum, and as President of the Canadian Archaeological Association. These papers will present research that Jack has inspired or influenced, stories of encounters with Jack, and other topics that may narrowly involve this significant figure in Northern Plains archaeology.
