On September 10, 2009, Anthropology assistant professor Ben Ford made the final posts to his Web journal, sponsored by the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. These posts detail the process and findings of three years of archaeological investigations along the shores of Lake Ontario.

For the past three years Dr. Ford has compiled fifteen journal entries on the Museum of Underwater Archaeology website. These entries describe the “what” and “how” of his archaeological findings along the Lake Ontario littoral. The project journal, titled “Lake Ontario Cultural Landscape,” follows the project from planning, through research and fieldwork, to analysis and conclusions in order to give the public a sense of the archaeological process. The current phase of this project recently ended and, with it, the Web journal. The final two entries briefly describe the project conclusions and several avenues for future research.
