The Schreiber Wood archaeological project takes place on the north end of University of Toronto Mississauga campus on lands once owned by Weymouth Schreiber and his family. This website will serve as a repository for content and links related to the Schreiber Wood Project. Additional content will be posted here soon.

Project origin and goals 

  • The Schreiber Wood archaeological project was initiated for the ANT318H5 archaeological field school at UTM, with a focus on the cultural landscape created by the Schreiber family.
  • One of the project's first goals was identifying the location of Mount Woodham, a house that was located on what is today part of the UTM campus.

The Mystery of Mount Woodham Project

The Mystery of Mount Woodham Project aims to highlight and provide broader outreach on student-involved research at UTM through the example of the Department of Anthropology’s annual archaeological field school.
