The Archaeology seminar series is one of the oldest traditions in the Archaeology department and indeed, one of the oldest in the whole archaeology community of BC!

Join us once a week during the Fall and Spring terms for in-person presentations and discussions with a diversity of experts covering the broad range of topics that fall under the archaeology umbrella.
