The Nova Scotia Archaeology Society (NSAS) was formed in 1987 in response to a growing interest in the Province’s heritage resources. It is our mandate to bring together individuals interested in the study and promotion of archaeology, particularly as it relates to all cultures of Nova Scotia; to disseminate knowledge and encourage the exchange of information among professionals and amateurs alike; and to promote the preservation and protection of archaeological sites and resources throughout the Province.

Announcing a New Website

The Nova Scotia Archaeology Society has been preparing a brand-new website, to better serve the membership and to improve our public presence. The new website is currently “under construction”, but we encourage everyone to have a look and see how it is coming along. The “old” website, the one you are seeing right now, will remain active in parallel with the new one for a period of time. Here is the link to the new website, which will eventually be the new official NSAS home page link:


As you can see there, one of the important new features is the ability to pay your annual dues online using PayPal. That part is fully operational, so please go ahead and use it.

Education Resources

Discovering Archaeology Workbook
The NSAS has published a workbook to introduce young people to the science of archaeology. The hard-copy of the workbook is now out of print. A soft-copy in PDF form is available here and educators are encouraged to print copies for students themselves. In the original publication, pp. 15 and 17 (pp. 18-19 in PDF numbering) were printed single-sided on onionskin paper (translucent) to give the impression of looking down through three layers of buried artefacts, but the exercise still works even if these pages are printed single-sided on opaque paper, without the see-through effect. In terms of PDF page numbering, pp. 1,18,19,36 should be printed single-sided; all the other pages work best if printed double-sided.

Archaeologists found that different forms of gambling existed thousands of years ago. With today technology it transformed in to modern day online casinos. From antient times people have tryed games of chance. Check out my favourite review site , and read about Go Wild Casino for Canadian players.
