A piece of concrete at a former mining site in Gagnon, Quebec and a military metal barrel on an island in Happy Valley, Labrador - both artefact witnesses to recent Canadian history. The last picture is a conference session abstract that will tie them both together. "No Time Like the Present: Archaeologies of the Contemporary Era" is an Unruly Heritage-affiliated session at the next Canadian Archaeological Association Conference (@caa.aca2020) happening between May 6-9 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The session will seek to further develop contemporary archaeology in Canada and beyond by bringing a diverse group of contexts, methodologies, and theories into discussion.
For anyone wishing to present, the call for paper abstracts is now open on the CAA website. Please consider participating and circulate widely. Paper abstracts are due on Feb. 20th.
I absolutely loved seeing Banff in the winter. With all of the snow capped mountains and frozen lakes. But it has definitely made me excited to visit again in the spring or summer and see the area really come to life.
Does shivering count as exercise? 🥶🤔
Don’t be fooled, my 🍑 was freezing! 😂 but discovering places like this is what road trips are all about for me. I had always wanted to visit the snow capped Rockies in Western Canada, and they did not disappoint 😍
Our journey started in Calgary, and we pulled the car over when we found the beautiful frozen Lake Minnewanka. Little did we know that this would be the first of many frozen lakes on our journey, but this was also my first real experience of the Rockies after the crowded and noisy ski resorts at Banff🎿
Sometimes you just have to pause for a moment, and take it all in 🙌🏼 (even if you do end up with a frozen tush!) 😆

Tüm mallarınızı tutan bir el çantasına sahip olmaktan daha iyi ne olabilir? Şık olan! Bu kova çantaları hiçbir zaman gerçekten modası geçmedi, ancak bu çarpıcı seçeneklerle her zamankinden daha güçlü geliyorlar. Louis Vuitton'un yumuşak silüetinden Chanel'in Barbie esque tasarımına kadar, bu sonsuza dek yanınızda tutacağınız bir aksesuardır. Siyah, gri veya beyaz gibi geleneksel bir gölge seçmek yerine neden kutunun dışına çıkıp mavi, pembe veya kadife çiçeği tercih etmiyorsunuz? Bu görünümü sallamanın birçok yolu var ve onlarca yıl boyunca giymeye devam edebilirsiniz!
What’s better than having a handbag that holds all of your goods? A stylish one! These bucket bags have never really gone out of style, but they’re coming in stronger than ever with these stunning options. From a soft silhouette by Louis Vuitton to a Barbie-esque design by Chanel, this is an accessory that you will keep with you forever. Rather than choosing a traditional shade, such as black, grey, or white, why not step outside of the box and opt for something blue, pink, or marigold? There are so many ways to rock this look, and you can continue to wear it for decades to come!
If you’re wondering about the Canadian polar vortex, just know that the Calgary zoo had to bring their penguins in for safety. PENGUINS. You know, the birds that have literally evolved to withstand the freezing temperatures in ANTARCTICA. But nope, Alberta is too cold for even them right now.🥶 So give people some slack for being lazy and bundled up right now.
Also there’s me in this photo being 1: not the smartest & 2: a true Canadian. (I don’t recommend standing outside in freezing temperatures unless you’re dressed properly.) But anything for the photo right?😂😅
Also note, we would take a few shots and run back to the car to warm up before taking more again so we wouldn’t totally freeze. .
