Archaeological Sites in the Ottawa-Hull Area

In the Ottawa-Hull area, urban development over the past two centuries has obscured much archaeological evidence. For example, there used to be a Native campsite where the Canadian Museum of Civilization now stands. Its remains were destroyed in the nineteenth century when sand and gravel were removed from the site to build the East and West blocks of Canada's Parliament. Fortunately, artifacts from some of the region's ancient sites have been preserved.
