As always, ASI is participating in the annual OAS Conference, taking place this year in Chatham Kent from November 9-11, 2018. The theme for this year’s symposium is Connections and Pathways through the Past.
From the conference description: “Come and explore the historic “Forks” of the Thames River and MacGregor Creek, a meeting place for Indigenous people, War of 1812 battle site, connection point on the Underground Railroad and mecca of early Black Settlement.”
On Saturday, November 10th, Partner Katie Hull is chairing a session on “Past Lives Lived: Chatham-Kent and Environs.” Based on our extensive work in the Chatham area, Katie Hull and Andrew Riddle encouraged people to submit papers on the rich local archaeology.
On Sunday morning, Partner David Robertson will present a paper in a session in honour Dr. Karolyn Smardz Frost. David will revisit one of Karolyn’s great successes in public archaeology, with a paper titled “Returning to Thornton and Lucie Blackburn’s Neighbourhood: 25 Years After the Archaeological Resource Centre.”
