You can also learn about Ontario's over 10 000 year long past and what you can do to find out more about it and help protect that unique and fragile legacy for the generations of tomorrow to appreciate and learn from. The Ontario Archaeological Society began in 1950 as the joint project of a group of enthusiastic amateurs whose interest in "buried history" had been sparked by the exciting lectures of John Norman Emerson, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Toronto. The society's continual growth in membership has made it the voice of the archaeological community in Ontario.
