For: Archaeology Students & Professionals
Site leads are information about potential archaeological sites, recorded in the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s Past Portal inventory of archaeological sites for use and reference by professional archaeologists. Ontario has thousands of unregistered archaeological sites that have never been entered into the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s Past Portal inventory of archaeological sites. Many sites continue to be found by non-archaeologists who do not have access to the site inventory.
There are currently no incentives or processes to encourage site lead entries in Ontario. To-date less than 50 site leads have been recorded. The Lead Legacy Project is designed to encourage the entry of site leads through a social event for archaeologists paired with a fundraiser for a worthy heritage cause or institution.
Help us add 100 new site leads based on Wilfrid Jury’s 1930s collection and other sources at the MOA. By entering unregistered sites into Past Portal via the site lead process we can mitigate consequences to land management and heritage integrity.
Students and professionals are welcome to drop into this pilot event anytime. Pizza, snacks and beverages will be provided.
