Welcome to the 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.
