Once in a while I yawn, stretch, and look across the Moat of Georgia and notice something interesting happening in Vancouver. This time I see there are two forthcoming events for those within striking distance of the Velvet Rut.
First, UBC is holding its annual Archaeology Day this weekend, Sunday March 21st. The program, which looks great, can be viewed here. The event is free and open to the public and is held in the Anthropology and Sociology Building on the UBC Campus.
Second, the Vancouver Chapter of the Archaeological Society of BC is holding a public lecture featuring SFU professor Eldon Yellowhorn. His topic is “Encountering Modernity: the Piikani Historical Archaeology Project. The poster is below, click for a legible version. The talk is Wednesday March 24th at 7.00 at the Museum of Vancouver (who don’t seem to have it listed on their calendar), and it is free and open to the public.
Memo to the ASBC-Vancouver: update your web site if you want people to come to your talks.
