The next London Chapter get together is our annual picnic, which will be held on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at Longwoods Conservation Area west of Delaware, Ontario:

With July almost upon us it is also time for the annual Chapter picnic. As in past years we are holding it on the third Sunday of the month in conjunction with the Annual Archaeology Day at the Longwoods Conservation area just west of Delaware, Ontario on Sunday July 16th from ca. 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This archaeology day is always a fun event in which London OAS members such as Chris Ellis and Jim Keron have long participated, serving as experts who will identify and tell people everything they ever wanted to know about artifacts they may have found. The event is always well-publicized and people from throughout the area have been known to line up to hear about the artifacts they have come across. As well, there are flintknapping demonstrations, altlatl throwing at a fake deer and one gets a chance to tour the Iroquoian village reconstruction at Longwoods as well as their resource centre that has several displays on the local natural and human history of the area. The picnic will begin about 11 AM --- bring your picnic lunch and there is a barbecue available if you are into hot dogs and burgers and sausages -- Longwoods often provides us with such goodies!! As this is our Chapter's 40th anniversary there may be some special extras too! In return for our chapter’s help, all London Chapter OAS members get free admission – just tell them you are a chapter member at the entry gate. Details of how to get to Longwoods can found at their website: Longwoods-road-conservation-area-ska-nah-doht-village-museum/

The Kewa...
We are behind in the issuing of our newsletter Kewa for the simple reason people have not been submitting papers for publication (Issue 15[4 to 5] is in press). The Kewa is a great way to get into a more accessible form important data, information and ideas about the archaeology of Ontario. Short reports on sites excavated through CRM activities are especially welcome. There must be lots of CRM reports out there that could be easily cleaned up and published. More and more sites are found each year and yet less are published -- and unless they are published the data might as well not exist -- see Chris Ellis' editorial from Kewa 10(3-4) by clicking here! Contact co-editor Chris Ellis if you have something of interest: cjellis@uwo.ca.
