June is National Indigenous History Month and the 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day!
As of May 15th, 2020, all Saskatchewan Archaeological Society programs, services, and outreach are officially postponed or cancelled for Summer 2020 (May to August).
This includes ArchaeoCaravan programs and outreach events, the excavation field school at Fort Carlton Provincial Park, the Annual Chapter BBQ, the Annual Gathering, the Annual General Meeting, Archaeokit rentals, library book borrowing, and workshops.
Online educational resources and our Kid’s Activity page are available on our website right now! We hope to add more online content in the coming months. The Den of Antiquity website store is also still available to purchase books and the fur trade game. If you live in Saskatoon, take advantage of our free, contact-less delivery option!
We anticipate having a Virtual Annual General Meeting sometime during the fall of 2020. More information regarding details and the date will be found in the August edition of the Saskatchewan Archaeology Quarterly and online later this summer.
The Archaeology Centre (1-1730 Quebec Avenue, Saskatoon) will remain closed to the public for the foreseeable future. Staff are available via email and phone. Please note that it may take a few days to respond to phone messages.
Now for something different!
