The ASBC-NB seeks to conserve archaeological resources and recognizes the inextricable link between conservation of archaeological sites and public education. We work to provide opportunities for the public to get hands-on experience with archaeology and archaeological principles, as well as learn about heritage conservation.

As a Society consisting of interested citizens, students, and vocational archaeologists we provide lectures given by speakers from all over the province offering a wide range of topics.
