The Archaeologists follows six people from the fictional edge city Wississauga whose lives intersect when bones are discovered in a backyard overlooking the site of a proposed thoroughfare. As personal beliefs are challenged and lives are turned upside down, they each must grapple with the big questions--the environment, consumerism, ennui, repatriation.

Hal Niedzviecki is a writer, speaker, culture commentator and editor whose work challenges preconceptions and confronts readers with the offenses of everyday life. He is the author of eleven books of fiction and nonfiction, including Trees on Mars: Our Obsession with the Future (2015), and the publisher/founder of Broken Pencil, a magazine of zine culture and the independent arts. Hal's writing has appeared in newspapers and journals across the world including The New York Times Magazine, The Guardian, Utne Reader, The Globe and Mail, The Walrus, and Geist. Hal lives and works in Toronto.

Hal Niedzviecki's vividly portrayed characters, caught in the conflict between the natural and the urban, resonate with the rage that unbridled modernity raises in all of us, whether we know it or not. The Archaeologists is a novel Jane Jacobs would have loved. -- Wayne Grady, author of Emancipation Day
