Abstract: A Sum­mer with the Archaeo­Car­a­van
The Archaeo­Car­a­van Pro­gram was a five-year project between the Saskatchewan Archae­o­log­i­cal Soci­ety (SAS) and the Muse­ums Asso­ci­a­tion of Saskatchewan (MAS). The pro­gram was designed to assist Saskatchewan muse­ums with the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and dis­play of their archae­o­log­i­cal col­lec­tions and to spread aware­ness of Saskatchewan’s cul­tur­al his­to­ry. The pro­gram reach­es school chil­dren and the gen­er­al pub­lic through school pro­grams and pub­lic events, which are deliv­ered in part­ner­ship with local muse­ums. In 2016, the Archaeo­Car­a­van vis­it­ed the North East Muse­um Net­work, which includ­ed trips to La Ronge, Creighton, and some of Saskatchewan’s north­ern provin­cial parks.
