Sue Bazely’s achievements over the past 25 years serving Kingston through public archaeology were honoured at the 2007 OAS symposium in Kingston.
In her role as executive director and senior archaeologist of the Cataraqui Archaeological Research Foundation which operates out of the Kingston Archaeological Centre, she initiated many programmes. She was responsible for the development and supervision of the summer camp program (Can You Dig It?), materials for ages ranging from the under 7s (Tiny Trowels), to school age (complying with Ontario Education Curriculum standards, Quinte Mohawk School, SEEDS), and high school students (EMC at Queen’s), and area Museums Collaborative (Hands on Heritage).
From an early awareness of the potential of the internet to books published in partnership with regional archaeologist and historians, she has shown continuing innovative enthusiasm for the public aspect of archaeology.
