The 2015 Manitoba Archaeological Society Conference and Annual General Meeting will be held in Winnipeg September 25th-27th. This year’s conference will focus on the Glacial Lake Agassiz Survey (GLAS), which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. GLAS was a four-year project in environmental archaeology. It involved a systematic investigation of potential shoreline occupations of early Glacial Lake Agassiz in order to record and excavate Early Pre-European contact period sites that would have been located on its shoreline.
