Description

Underground Nova Scotia provides an accessible introduction to the archaeologist work being done across Nova Scotia. Edited by St. Mary's University anthropologists Paul Erickson and Jonathan Fowler, these fifteen essays cover early Acadian, Mi'kmaq, Black Loyalist, and Norse sites, as well as more recent settlements and industries. The collection includes details of new work at some of the province's established historic sites, including Grand Pre, Fort Edward, and Fortress Louisbourg, as well as less familiar studies and technologies: tracing and ancient portage route through Southwest Nova Scotia, and the use of airborne lasers to chart eighteenth-century land disputes on the Isthmus of Chignecto.

From the lost Black Loyalist settlement of Birchtown to skeletons recently found at the Fortress of Louisbourg, these essays will fascinate history lovers.
