Go behind the scenes in our Archaeology Lab to learn about the techniques experts use to preserve artifacts unearthed on archaeological digs.
Dig into Archaeology Month with Canadian Museum of History archaeologist Jean-Luc Pilon and conservator Caroline Marchand. Our experts will unearth the secrets of artifacts from New Severn Post, an early Hudson’s Bay Company trading post in Ontario’s northernmost reaches. Travel back in time to the days of intense rivalry between England and France, and learn about the techniques museums use to preserve archaeological finds for future generations. This behind-the-scenes activity is especially suited to families, and to anyone interested in archaeology or the history of Canada’s early fur trade.
