Laboratoire d’archéologie publique / Public Archaeology Lab

October 1, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - October 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Musée régional de Rimouski

Rimouski, Quebec G5L 4B4 Canada

We like to think of archaeologists as diggers who, trowel in hand, extract remains from the ground and describe their context. However, while excavation is the most visible and iconic activity in archeology, it is only part of their task. It is in the laboratory that they spend the most time processing their findings, analyzing their data and proposing interpretations that will contribute to our knowledge. As it takes place out of the public eye, this stage of the archaeological process is also the least understood.
To make this work more visible, the Laboratoire d’archéologie et de patrimoine (Archeology and Heritage Laboratory) of the University of Quebec at Rimouski is moving into the Rimouski Regional Museum. From October 1 to 17, 2021, visitors are invited to interact with the archaeologists in residence as they continue their research on local and regional archaeological material.
