Archaeologist approved for property owners’ work in Lytton

February 25, 2024

This winter, the Village of Lytton sought expressions of interest from qualified archaeologists to oversee work for Lytton property owners, who might require archaeology services, depending on their building plans.

The B.C. Ministry of Forests Archaeology Branch has approved archaeologist Michael Elvidge to be added to the heritage permit for Lytton and to work with individual property owners.

Michael is a Registered Professional Consulting Archaeologist and an experienced permit holder and project manager in the Interior Plateau and the Sub-Boreal Forest cultural areas. He has 11 years of consulting archaeology experience.
