Members Meeting -  Oct. 10th 2013 - Huronia Museum - 7 PM

Another night of washing - artifacts from the Allen tract.

As a result of a our very successful public archaeology event at the Allen tract August 17th-18th we have a lot of artifacts that need our attention before we send them to Alicia Hawkins at Laurentian U for further detailed analysis.
Some of the artifacts that we cleaned up and sorted at our September meeting are pictured below, others appear in the fall edition of our newsletter "the POT" thanks to Bill Gibson.

We may also have a brief presentation on some new information on old material from the Narrows at Orillia.
