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.
Thanks for the extra advertising! We are in the middle of having the ASBC Vancouver web site redesigned, so stay tuned for future talks and events.
Hi Rudy, Hope the Eldon Yellowhorn talk goes well tonight, and I’m looking forward to your new website. If you want to advertise this blog to ASBC Vancouver then by all means go ahead — quid pro quo or whatever!!
We’re happy to promote any of our partner events if we receive notice of a few days so we can upload to our site.
