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.

These photos are of part of a private collection held by the property owner and came to the surface when he put in his crops. It was originally assessed to date circa 1550. However after sharing the photos with Dr Gary Warrick I got the following comment regarding this collection. "Interestingly, I examined the Penetang Lake artifacts from your photos that you provided. In my estimation, Penetang Lake dates ca. 1430-1460 - clearly a 15h century site, not a 16th century site." More photos of the collection can be found on our Facebook page.
