Can you dig it?
Visitors invited to take part in a dig
It’s unlikely you’ll find gold doubloons or Spanish treasure, but diggers might discover shards of glass or old crockery this summer.
That’s what awaits all volunteers who want to take in a little archaeological sleuthing here next month.
It’s called public archaeology and will be a highlight at Three Rivers Roma national historic site when a summer dig is conducted on a 19th century Scottish farmhouse.
Organizers say Islanders and visitors alike can take part in the experience from July 6 to 10.
“Interested individuals are invited to participate first hand in the research and documentation of the history of Brudenell Point,” says volunteer board member Gordon Cobb. “They will learn about archaeological methods and processes in an engaging and accessible way.”
Interested volunteers should contact Provincial Archaeologist Dr. Helen Kristmanson, Director, Aboriginal Affairs and Archaeology, at hekristmanson@ or 902-368-6895.
Three Rivers Roma national historic site and summer tour guide Tara Llewellyn are looking for budding diggers to join an archaeological experience this summer.
