Welcome to the new website of the Ontario Archaeological Society.

The past is a beacon to the future. Ontario's ancient history is rich, varied and a source of pride for all Ontarians.

Here you can find out about the OAS: our goals, the activities of our members throughout the province and our publications. You can also learn about Ontario's 10,000 year long past and what you can do to find out more about it and help protect that unique and fragile legacy for the generations of tomorrow to appreciate and learn from.

Come along and share in Ontario's archaeological heritage.

The Ontario Archaeological Society gratefully acknowledges funding from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport through the Provincial Heritage Organization Operating Grant Program.

Giving Tuesday Partner with CanadaHelps.org


As a registered charitable organization the OAS is a proud partner of CanadaHelps' Giving Tuesday fundraising drive on November 29, 2016, to encourage people to make charitable donations at this time of year. The benefit of donating through CanadaHelps is that they make it quick and easy to make the donation and to receive the tax receipt, while still allowing the charitable organization to receive the maximum amount of all donations. Our fundraising initiative for this drive is to re-develop a Manual for Public Archaeology in Ontario, updated from the old Manual for Avocational Archaeologists, to help educate and guide people through the regulations and best practices that structure archaeology in the province. If you are interested in donating to this initiative please visit the initiative's webpage and feel free to contact the OAS board if you have any questions.
