IntroductionThe Ontario Archaeological Society is formed of a parent body and a number of local chapters in various cities in Ontario. The London Chapter represents the regional interests and concerns of the archaeological community in Southwestern Ontario, by providing field activities, social events, and advocacy opportunities. The chapter has sponsored a number of research projects over the years centred on local archaeology. For those interested in the archaeology of Southern Ontario a suggested reading list has been assembled recently.
A series of monthly meetings is held on the second Thursday of each month from September to April (no December meeting). The meeting starts at eight PM and is held at the London Museum of Archaeology located at 1600 Attawandaron Road. Each meeting features a keynote speaker on a wide range of subjects relating to modern Archaeology.
The Chapter produces two publications series. A
newsletter, KEWA, published eight times/issues per year, has included a large
number of research articles. An index
of the entire KEWA
series, which began in 1976, is included here. Back Issues can be ordered
from the chapter. One of the features in KEWA is a series of
Southern Ontario Point Types which have been reproduced here to make
them available to a wider audience. Another regular feature from 1980-1988 was
the one page 19th Century Notes by Thomas and Ian
Kenyon, which included 42 different profusely and beautifully illustrated
descriptions of several different 19th Century Euro-Canadian Artifacts and
Structures. An index of these is included on
this website and one can purchase a special cirlox bound copy of all the
19th Century Notes by contacting the Chapter treasurer (firstname.lastname@example.org). The chapter also runs an Occasional
Publication Series which handles larger monographs and synthetical
