Pointe-Aux-Vieux Excavation Begins

Pointe-Aux-Vieux Site, June 2010

The excavation at Pointe-Aux-Vieux, in Low Point, Prince County has commenced. The site is in a beautiful location overlooking the shores of Malpeque Bay and Lennox Island.

The first excavation of this early Acadian farm site began in June 2009 when excavations revealed part of a stone foundation, fireplace or what was likely an outdoor oven, complete with charcoal and cultural remains.

It will be a very busy two weeks, but I will try to keep this space up-to-date. So stay tuned for details of the excavation and lots of photos and video!
