Based on a long-term archaeology project, Forgotten Things provides an account of working with archaeology field school students to uncover early-twentieth-century Japanese logging camps in the Seymour Valley of British Columbia.

The first book in the new Teaching Archaeology series, Forgotten Things aims to provide students with a real-world example of archaeological research in practice. It provides an overview of the Seymour Valley Archaeological Project from the initial telephone call to the disposition of artefacts and archiving of records. The book takes the reader from the inception of the project through the creation of the research design, fieldwork, laboratory work, drawing inferences, and making the research meaningful. It delves into considerations that guide research design and methods, and it examines the culture of archaeological fieldwork. Through anecdotes, stories from the field, and extracts from field notes, Forgotten Things offers rare insight into the realities of archaeological research not often seen in archaeological studies.
