Established in 1966, the Archaeological Society of British Columbia (ASBC) draws together both professionals and enthusiasts of Archaeology of British Columbia (BC).
- To encourage the identification and protection of archaeological sites and material in B.C.
- To provide lectures and publications for the spread of knowledge about archaeology.
The ASBC publishes an illustrated quarterly, The Midden, with articles and news on British Columbia’s archaeology. Members receive a subscription to The Midden, or you can subscribe.
Occasionally, we organize field trips where members can volunteer to:
- Assist on professionally sponsored digs. On-site training is given to members without experience.
- Participate in the laboratory; cleaning, analyzing and cataloguing materials from the field.
