Olivia is in the final year of her undergraduate degree at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. She is majoring in Geomatics with a double minor in Archaeology and Greek and Roman Studies. Her interests lie in the applications of remote sensing and GIS applications in archaeology and urban planning. Olivia’s primary interest is in zooarchaeology and is currently looking into various master's programs in archaeology and urban planning. She is fascinated in the connections from the past and their applications in the modern-day city, and how past practices can lead to cleaner and greener cities.

Evelyn is a first year student majoring in history at Carleton University. She is planning to declare archaeology as a minor in her second year, and expand her knowledge on the subject as much as possible with the hope of pursuing an MA in archaeology in the future. She is also passionate about geography and is planning to incorporate this into her degree to complement her knowledge. Currently, Evelyn’s primary goal is to participate in her first dig at some point in the near future, when possible.
