1st Vice President

Brad Hyslop

Brad resides in the community of Hudson located in Northwestern Ontario and has been a member of the Manitoba Archaeological Society since 2002.  He has regularly attended, presented and brought artifacts for display at MAS conferences for the past 10 years.  In 2012, he acted as host and conference chair when the MAS held their “Beyond the Boundaries” themed annual conference and AGM in Sioux Lookout, Ontario.  Brad believes that the archaeological connection between Northern Minnesota, Northwestern Ontario and Eastern Manitoba is very strong. He has coined the term “Minontoba” to describe this region.

In December of 2016, he retired from a successful career in the financial services industry.  He is hoping that this will allow him additional time to conduct research.  Brad for has held a licence to carry out archaeological investigations within Ontario for over 25 years.  He currently holds a research level licence and has focused his field work within the boreal forest on a water body known as Lac Seul.  In addition to the MAS, he is a member of the Ontario Archaeological Society (OAS), Canadian Archaeological Society (CAA) and the Minnesota Archaeological Society (the other MAS).  Brad is beyond “passionate” about archaeology.
