ASAEC has organized field trips to sites like the Strathcona Site, the Viking Ribstones, and more.
Survey and Excavation Projects
Projects ASAEC has run that allow members to participate in survey and excavation include at Brazeau Reservoir, White Spruce Park, and more. The Brazeau Archaeological Project has been our largest project, headed by Madeline Coleman and Amandah van Merlin. This multi-year project has involved surface survey and some excavation at multiple sites within the reservoir. Artifacts found at these sites show a history of occupation over 10 000 years.
Stones and Bones and Information Tables
ASAEC puts on Stones and Bones events where people can bring in artifacts for identification and talk to us about archaeology. We also attend events at places like the Telus Wold of Science, Fort Edmonton, and Elk Island and set up information tables with artifacts and replicas, dig boxes, and sample excavations. If you are with a museum or other facility and would like to discuss having us set up a table or event with you, please contact email@example.com.
