About Peggi Armstrong The Award's Parameters The Award
The Peggi Armstrong
Public Archaeology Award
 
In 1996 the Ottawa Chapter of the Ontario Archaeological Society celebrated its 25th Anniversary by launching a new Public Archaeology award, showing its commitment to a greater public awareness of archaeology. The award was named the "Peggi Armstrong Public Archaeology Award "in remembrance of Peggi Armstrong (1957 - 1997).

As a long-standing member of the OAS and the Ottawa Chapter, Peggi was a driving force behind the development of a public archaeology component of the Chapter's activities. The commitment and creative enthusiasm introduced by Peggi,  led to a broadening of programme mandate and a continuing public interface with the regional communities of Eastern Ontario.

Over the past ten years, the Ottawa Chapter has developed an active public archaeology programme in Eastern Ontario, working with provincial parks, municipal agencies and the school system. The Ottawa Chapter is aware that many OAS members, institutions and organizations work diligently towards the preservation and advancement of archaeology through activities, programmes and formal educational studies.

The recognition of these contributions through the official award process of the OAS is now possible with the "Peggi Armstrong Public Archaeology Award".
