Conclusion (We Hope Not)...
After identifying the collections and finishing the research, Katie Urban and Paige Glenen co-curated a temporary exhibit at the Museum of Ontario Archaeology in July and August 2011.
However, the end of our exhibit should not be the end of the story. It has been our frustrating pleasure to work with these artefacts and we have tried very hard to re-trace the timeline and fill in the blanks. There are still many research possibilities contained within these collections, and we hope others will enjoy the mystery as much as we have.

Comments from the Exhibit Guestbook
"Excellent exhibit! It is amazing to have such a great exhibit right here in London. I am very impressed with the amount of detail and visuals done without much funding. I hope you find out about the 'dormouse jar'. Congratulations!
"Great job guys! Amazing find!"
"Great exhibit - I remember looking at these artifacts 20 years ago in artifact storage and dreaming of seeing them on display someday! I always wondered why the Museum ended up with Guildhall Museum artifacts."
"Amazing! I hope you find a permanent spot for it."
"This is the less glamorous but just as exciting side of Archaeology. Great work!"
-Gerry and Pam
