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.

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


The Charlie Garrad Avocational Archaeological Collections Fund

The roots of the Ontario Archaeological Society (OAS) lie in the long-term contributions and commitment shown to the organization by avocational or amateur archaeologists. These individuals built the organization in the early days and they made and continue to make important contributions to our understanding of Ontario’s past.

The Charlie Garrad Avocational Archaeological Collections Fund has been established to support the transition of archaeological collections, including artifacts and documentation, from avocational archaeologists to long-term permanent curation facilities. This can be a costly endeavor that can involve purchase of curation materials and/or the need for personnel to catalogue or rehouse materials. The fund is named in honour of our long-term former president and executive director, who was himself an avocational archaeologist, and who, through decades of study, contributed enormously to the archaeology of the Petun.
