In Memory of Ken Reynolds

The Newfoundland and Labrador Archaeological Society is truly saddened to learn of the passing of Ken Reynolds, of the Provincial Archaeology Office. With Ken’s death, we have lost both a great friend and a wonderful colleague, whose encyclopedic, broad-ranging knowledge of Newfoundland and Labrador archaeology can never be replaced. So many of us have had help, guidance, advice, and grand chats with Ken, and he made our small archaeological community a better place.

The NLAS understands that a scholarship in Ken’s name is being organized for the Department of Archaeology at Memorial University, and in the coming weeks we will announce our plans for a donation to the scholarship fund. We cannot think of a better way to honour Ken’s memory than to support future generations of archaeologists in the province. Thank you, Ken, for being a great friend, and for your never-ending enthusiasm for Newfoundland and Labrador’s archaeology.
