Dates of existence


The Archaeological Society of B.C. developed out of an archaeology course offered by the Extension Department at the University of British Columbia in 1966. The Society has offered regular lectures by authorities in archaeology, carried out field trips to places of interest to members and it arranges "digs" for members. The Society undertakes surveys and records sites, and also draws the attention of the proper authorities to cases where sites have been, or are about to be, destroyed through road construction, damming, subdivision development or by vandalism.
