Northeast Archaeological Research was established in 1998 by Jonathan Fowler, a Landscape Archaeologist based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

A Commonwealth Scholar with over twenty four years of archaeological fieldwork experience, Dr. Fowler has excavated Bronze Age habitation and Roman military sites in England, a Roman urban site in Hungary, and a Minoan settlement on the island of Crete. His activities in eastern Canada have focused primarily on the colonial period, particularly on the history and geography of pre-Deportation Acadia.

Since 1998, with support from The Nova Scotia Museum and Parks Canada, his work has explored early colonial landscapes in Nova Scotia through geophysical surveys and archaeological testing. He is Director of the Grand-Pré Archaeological Field School, a collaborative research initiative launched in 2001 by Parks Canada, Saint Mary's University, and The Société Promotion Grand-Pré.

Dr. Fowler is an Associate Professor of Anthropology (Archaeology) at Saint Mary's University in Halifax.
