The next get-together of the London Chapter will be our Annual Picnic, as always to be held in conjunction with Archaeology/Artifact Day at the Longwoods Conservation Area west of Delaware, Ontario. It will be held on Sunday, July 17/16 beginning at 11:00 AM. London Chapter members will get free admission so do not purchase a ticket at the automated machine at the gate. Rather follow the entrance road to the resource centre in the Conservation Area where you can pick up a ticket for display in your vehicle and then park in the lot just to the north of the centre. All you need is your picnic lunch including beverages! There will be a barbecue if you need it and there is always some extra free food like hot dogs. London Chapter members will identify artifacts brought in by the general public and there is always a chance to try one’s hand at flint-knapping and such -- see details about how to get to the Conservation area here: http://www.lowerthames-conservation.on.ca/conservation-lands/longwoods-road-conservation-area-ska-nah-doht-village-museum/ Also. details of the artifact day can be found here:http://www.lowerthames-conservation.on.ca/events/artifact-day/ See you there!
