Volunteer Archaeology in and around Calgary

Ok, so you’ve always wanted to dabble in a little archaeology but you’re not quite ready to take the big leap and go on the best dig ever (svgdigs).  Well, stay local and try your hand at a couple of volunteer programs around Calgary. If you’re an avid enthusiast, join the Archaeological Society of Alberta and keep up to date on all future events. Then, when you’ve got the bug, you can think about joining us in the Caribbean…
