These artifacts are from a private collection believed by some to be from the Wendat village of Toanche that Champlain visited in August of 1615. If you our your family members have artifacts like these, we would like to know. Please contact the Huronia chapter of the Ontario Archaeological Society via the Huronia museum so that we can arrange to photograph them and add them to our knowledge of the area. -https://www.facebook.com/HuroniaChapterOfTheOntarioArchaeologySociety
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.
