Pointe-Aux-Vieux Excavation, June 14th-15th

Monday and Tuesday I was home sick and sad to be unable to attend the excavation. However, the crew got off to a great start and I have pictures to prove it!

Tuesday was a flurry of activity between digging, the media, visitors, and a wild wind. Minister of Health and Wellness, Carolyn Bertram visited the site, as well as local MLAs Sonny Gallant and Paula Biggar.

Media including CBC, CTV, The Guardian and The Journal Pioneer were there. I am so happy to see coverage of the Pointe-Aux-Vieux excavation. Hopefully this will help spark interest in Archaeology on Prince Edward Island!
