Collaboration in Stanhope

For the first week of August last year, we were given the opportunity to collaborate with Parks Canada on a site of theirs located in Stanhope, a community on PEI’s north shore.  I won’t say too much about it here, because you can read all about the project on the Stanhope Historical Society’s website by clicking the link below.

(There’s nothing about last year’s work yet, but it was basically a continuation of what was done in previous field seasons.)

It was great to be able to partner with Parks on this excavation, and a good time was had by all.  Here are a few pictures of our field crew in action.

  1. We’ll be visiting PEI next week– any chance that we can drop by and view an archaeological dig while we’re there? (I’d love for my kids to see one, just like the passersby in one of your photos). Thanks!


    • Hi Kevin,

      We currently have a dig operating out of Orwell Corner Historic Village that we use as part of our public archaeology program. I’m not sure where you’re staying when you’re on the Island, but if you’re in the area, or don’t mind some travelling, that would be the one to check out. Because of things like weather and other committments, we’re not on site every day; however if you drop by on a nice day, there’s a good chance that we’ll be around. But just in case, it wouldn’t hurt to call the front desk (902-651-8515) ahead of time and have them verify that we’re actually there.

      Thanks for your interest,
