Thierry Boyer: Underwater Archaeologist with Parks Canada’s Underwater Archaeology Team
Thierry Boyer was born on the South Shore of Montreal. He began studying anthropology and historical archaeology at Laval University in Québec City, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in 1999. He then travelled to France to pursue a Master’s degree in Marine Archaeology at the Sorbonne, focusing on ancient ship bilge pumps. He started as a volunteer with Parks Canada’s Underwater Archaeology Service in 1997, excavating the Elizabeth and Mary shipwreck (1690), and became a full-time underwater archaeologist with the team in 2007. He previously worked on a number of archaeological projects, both underwater and on land, in Wyoming, Quebec, and Ontario.
Thierry has long been interested in public outreach and education. He also serves as the photo and video specialist for Parks Canada’s underwater archaeology team.
