Archaeology Mondays

Do you want to dig into history?

Now with Archeology Mondays at Fort George, you can! Starting July 8th –Aug 26th, join us every Monday to discover how archeology can help us understand the past.

Archeologists learn about the past by carefully unearthing objects left by people.

In the 1970s, professional archeologists explored of the site where Fort George once stood. These excavations taught them about the jobs people did, the exact location of each building in the fort, and how the people involved in the fur trade lived.


Now you can discover how these archeological digs were done and what we learned about the early fur trade by examining the things people left behind.


Each Monday, join the interpreters at Fort George to take part in activities which let you explore Fort George and Buckingham House’s archeological history. Try a different family friendly activity each week. With a variety of activities such as mapping a dig site, locating artifacts in our mock dig pits, and deducing the stories of these artifacts, you and your family can experience how archeologists discover and interpret the past.


Join us every Monday from 11:00-3:00 for these drop-in programs. No registration required!


Every Monday 11:00-3:00 until August 26, 2019
