Archaeological Dig on PEI – Greenwich, Prince Edward Island National Park

The area around St. Peters Bay has been a place of continuous human habitation for more than 10,000 years. Today the land is uninhabited, protected within Prince Edward Island National Park, but the rich cultural heritage of its previous inhabitants is still preserved within its soil. In June 2008, an archaeology field school was established along Greenwich’s Tlaqatik Trail. Run jointly by Parks Canada and University of Prince Edward Island, the dig’s aim during its four week program was to find artefacts that will help shed light on Acadian families who lived in the area during the mid-1700s.
