Jamie Hunter was digging around in both his own library and that of the Huronia Museum (available for use by researchers) and refound these two excellent works, both of which deal with maps from the Champlain era:
Cartographica: Explorations and Mapping, of Samuel de Champlaion 1603-1632 by C. E. Heidenreich. Monograph No. 17 / 1976. Univ. of Toronto Press. ISBN 0-919870-17-1 ISSN 0317-7173
Early Printed Maps of Canada 1540-1703 by Kenneth A. Kershaw. Kershaw Publishing, 1993. ISBN 0-9697184-0-3 pp 311 with index
We encourage the practice of ethical archaeology in the discovery of the history of Huronia (northern Simcoe County) through archaeological research and discussion of the historic record and oral tradition. Please feel free to comment and or join and post on the blog. Blog contents do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Ontario Archaeological Society or the Huronia chapter.
