Past Projects

The mandate of the ASBC-NB includes informing the public about archaeology and promoting conservation initiatives.  This often brings the ASBC-NB out in to the public forum, becoming involved in displays and activities that illustrate archaeological principles, as well as supporting and participating in heritage and conservation events.  Below are some of the events that we have or are currently involved with:
