Espersen & Son was founded in 2019 by Dr. Ryan Espersen, a Caribbean historical archaeologist who relocated to BC's Lower Mainland. Dr. Espersen is an expert in material culture of Europe and the Americas from the 17th to 20th centuries. He lived on the island of Saba (Dutch Caribbean) for seven years and worked extensively across the eastern Caribbean on archaeological excavations on land and at sea. He has worked closely with local governments as a cultural heritage consultant, represented Saba for UNESCO, and was instrumental in founding the Saba National Park. From Langley, BC, Espersen & Son seeks to connect people and business to their region's past through historical set design consultation and by creatively re-purposing discarded artifacts.
