1996 Symposium-The Programme of Events

The Ottawa Chapter organized the Ontario Archaeological Society's 23 rd annual symposium as part of the Chapter's 25th anniversary of its founding. Since many of our members are from outside the Ottawa area, we decided to hold the symposium in another part of Eastern Ontario. Under the guidance of Marian Clark, the organizing committee spent several months setting up a really special conference at the Donald Gordon Centre on the campus of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, between October 25 and 27, 1996.

The symposium's theme wanted to improve our appreciation for the role played by "small sites" in our understanding of Ontario's past. This message was embodied in the symposium's title: "Home is Where the Hearth Is".

In addition to formal papers, there were many events scheduled to give symposium participants the opportunity to renew friendships or make new ones, poster displays and an archaeo-market. Check out our photo-album.
