Arch Notes is edited by Sheryl Smith and Carole Stimmel and is provided to members before it becomes accessible to the public.
The recent issue of Arch Notes is Volume 24, Issue 2.
This issue contains the draft budget of the OAS for 2019. The 2019 Symposium's theme "The Past Under the Pavement: Archaeology in the City" and its Toronto venues is noted. Nominations are sought for two new awards. A book review and an update on a lesser-known avocational archaeologist named Hannah Ethel Black Smith (nee Duncan) are included along with an article about recording early site leads to the provincial database. Finally, this issue contains reminiscences of three longtime members of the OAS - Charles Garrad, Janet Cooper and Helen Devereux.
