Name of creator
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.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of minutes, membership lists, financial records, correspondence and printed material generated by the Archaeological Society of British Columbia between 1966 and 1985. The fonds also includes a run of the Society's newsletter The Midden and a scrapbook illustrating the activities of the organization from 1966 to 1972.
Many photographs and clippings in scrapbook have become detached.
Immediate source of acquisition
The fonds was donated in a number of accessions between 1978 and the 1980’s by ASBC presidents.
Fonds was re-described in December 2009 to comply with RAD standards. Arrangement of the fonds remained unchanged.
