Ontario Archaeological Collections

Not all archaeological collections are display-worthy. The vast majority of artifacts look like these items - broken, disassociated pieces of pottery, stone, bone, metal and glass. Archaeologists find tremendous interpretive value in this material. The Sustainable Archaeology facilities will provide centralized storage for thousands of archaeological collections from southern Ontario. The data from these collections will be digitized and entered into a database that will be available over the web - enabling access and facilitating research on an exciting new scale within the Province.
