Do you have a question about an artifact?

Please note: The OAS supports laws protecting archaeological sites and artifacts, and we oppose the sale of artifacts. The Ontario Heritage Act states that no person shall knowingly alter an archaeological site without a license. if you have found an artifact we strongly encourage you to leave it in place and to take a photograph of it.

We would be happy to assist with the identification of material from such photographs.
