Public Archaeology Days in Huronia.

L-R Mike Hanna and Jamie Simmons
Last weekend we held our 2013 Public Archaeology Days event at the Allen tract site in Penetang. This was another very successful year for this event and I would like to thank all those who helped to organize, host and supervise over the 2 days that we spent on site getting down a dirty under the direction of Dr. Alicia Hawkins of Laurentian U. Without the aid and support Alicia and some of her students to act as supervisors this event could not have taken place. I would also like to thank Dr. Gary Warrick and Dr. Bonnie Glencross of WLU for their participation and support over the weekend.
On Saturday we had a total of 33 people on site including 10 supervisors and chapter volunteers and on Sunday we had a total of 32 including 11 supervisors and chapter volunteers. These numbers are up from last years event and attracted 24 non chapter members, some of whom have now joined the OAS or are in the process of doing so.
