The CAA executive and the 2014 Organizing Committee are happy to announce that the 2014 annual meeting will be held in London, Ontario, from May 14 to May 18, 2014.

Located near the heart of downtown London, the Hilton London Ontario will host all sessions, professional meetings and the banquet on May 17. The 2014 Organizing Committee has secured a competitive room rate of $119/night based on double occupancy including free parking (non-overnight guests can also park at the hotel at a rate of $5/day). A link to the Hilton’s CAA group booking will be available shortly until then guests can call 1-800-210-9336 to reserve a room; make sure to mention the Canadian Archaeological Association Annual Meeting to get the preferred rate. This room rate will only be available until March 31, 2014 or until the allocated block of rooms has been filled. A web link will be provided soon for online registration.

Registration will start in the late afternoon of May 14 in the hotel’s upper lobby. Sessions and workshops will start on the morning of Thursday, May 15 and will finish on the afternoon of Sunday, May 18th. The banquet will be held on Saturday evening, May 17th. A guest speaker has not been chosen yet and fieldtrips are being finalized; however expect tours of the Lawson Site and the Ontario Museum of Archaeology and Sustainable Archaeology.

The intersection of settler and Aboriginal nations past and present, a hub of academic and commercial archaeology, and site of exciting new archaeological initiatives, London and Southwestern Ontario welcome the 2014 Canadian Archaeological Association’s Annual Meeting. Looking forward to seeing you here!
