Lethbridge Centre Speaker Series

2022-2023 Speaker Series:

Invited speakers usually present their research and knowledge to our members at the Community Room in the Lethbridge Public Library on the first Tuesday of every month. Unfortunately, the library has decreased their hours of operation due to staffing and booking issues connected to COVID-19. Therefore, the meetings and guest lectures have been moved to the University of Lethbridge for the fall. Most talks will be held in room PE264, which is across from the Tim Hortons in the First Choice building. Parking is free in the parking lots near the main entrance after 6:00 pm. The meeting and presentions will also be available online. ASA Lethbridge Centre members receive the Zoom link in the monthly newsletters, but anyone wanting to join the meetings are welcome. Please contact the ASA Lethbridge Centre for a Zoom link to participate: arky.lethbridge@gmail.com

Topics range from local archaeological projects to sites and research carried out across the globe. The meetings start at 6:30 pm with a meet-and-greet, followed by a short business meeting. The guest speaker begins shortly thereafter.
