News Flash!

I have some exciting news to report this week…

The process has begun to designate Pointe-Aux-Vieux as a protected site under the Province’s Archaeology Act.

Out of the hundreds of archaeological sites on Prince Edward Island, less than a handful of them have been designated protected sites. If the process goes through, the Pointe-Aux-Vieux site, which rests on Crown land, will be protected from construction and other disturbances. Not only is this important for the physical protection of the site, it also raises awareness of Archaeology on Prince Edward Island and its important role in understanding Island History.

Others have also reported on this ‘newsworthy’ event. Check out the Media page for links to articles from the CBC and the Journal Pioneer, including an interview with Dr. Helen Kristmanson on the significance of the Pointe-Aux-Vieux site and the protection process.
