The 46th Annual Conference and Meeting will be held October 4-7, 2012 in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. Located on the historic and beautiful Avalon Peninsula, St. John's is the largest city in Newfoundland and is located near several major historic and archaeological sites. From the archeological sites at Ferryland, Cupids and Placentia, to historic Signal Hill and Cape Spear and The Rooms Provincial Museum, there is plenty to see.
The conference theme is "By Land or By Sea: Changing Worlds." This theme explores European expansion into the northeast, focusing on this movement as a catalyst for change. Environmental and economic considerations facilitated change but equally important was the exchange of ideas, information and technology between Native cultures, Africans and Europeans. North America thus became a different world for those who came across the sea and for the people who were already living there.
