The Path to Pointe-aux-Vieux

Video

A flashback to the Archaeological landscape in 2011 at the Acadian homestead site, Pointe-aux-Vieux (1728-1758).
Field crew, volunteers and visitors, from near and far, all followed this path to arrive at the Provincially designated archaeological site and stunning vista at Low Point, Prince Edward Island.

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.
