Archaeology Month: Reconstructions in the Canadian History Hall

Plan Your Visit

August is Archaeology Month at the Museum. Explore the archaeological research behind the new Canadian History Hall with two of the Museum’s curators: Dr. Janet Young and Dr. Matthew Betts.

The Canadian History Hall includes two state-of-the-art reconstructions based on collaborative archaeological research. Dr. Young and Dr. Betts will talk about this research, about their work with forensic artists, and about consultations with the Indigenous communities whose ancestors are shown in these reconstructions. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to visit a portion of the Canadian History Hall with Dr. Young and Dr. Betts.
