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.
As a result of a our very successful public
archaeology event at the Allen tract August 17th-18th we have a lot of
artifacts that need our attention before we send them to Alicia Hawkins at
Laurentian U for further detailed analysis.
I will also share a number of quotes from Sagard's "Histoire du
Canada" that indicate what we might expect to find on a Recollet era site
(1615-1625). These quotes will also give us a slight glimpse into life in these
villages at that time.
