Archaeology at Port-la-Joye—Fort Amherst National Historic Site, PEI

Port-La-Joye-Fort Amherst is rich in history of 4 cultures; the Mi’Kmaq, the French, the Acadians, and the British. Archaeological digs at the site help us to better understand how these people lived.

The Young Archaeologists Program started in 2008, and allows grade 6 students a rare chance to help Parks Canada archaeologists and staff to dig up artefacts, clean them and categorize them. Students learn about Port-La-Joye-Fort Amherst and its history, and learn about archaeology as well.
