University of Ottawa Archaeological Society
The uOAS was founded in the summer of 2010 by a group of friends and archaeology enthusiasts with the desire to unite and strengthen the archaeology community at the University of Ottawa and the Ottawa area. In its first two years, the uOAS raised over $500 toward fieldwork scholarships (matched by the Students’ Association of the Faculty of Arts), increased awareness of the Archaeological Institute of America’s programs and lectures and hosted successful movie nights and pub nights. The committee also worked tirelessly to garner the support from Ottawa’s Archaeological community, the department of Classics and Religious Studies and students to propose a Major and a Minor in Archaeology to the Faculty of Arts. The initial draft proposal was presented in 2011 and was well-received. Some changes were requested and suggestions made and a new proposal will be presented in early 2013. We hope to have a Major and a Minor available at the University of Ottawa students in the coming years.
We still have a lot planned for the 2012-13 year. Keep visiting this website for updates on the uOAS, the AIA and the world of Archaeology in general.
