Topic: BENEATH THE BLACKTOP: “Sub”-Urban Archaeology of the West End of Fredericton, New Brunswick
Date: January 15, 2015
In the Fall of 2013, a large construction project in the West End of Fredericton revealed a 5m deep profile that tells a compelling story about the last 12,000 years of the history of what is now Fredericton, NB. From a flooded forest which may be related to global flooding events around 8500 years ago – to evidence of early French, and Euro-Canadian occupations.
