AIA Society: New Brunswick

September – October 2019 marks the 150th anniversary of two salient episodes in the archaeology of Charlotte County: the investigation of the Simpson’s Farm shell-bearing site at Oak Bay by Spencer F. Baird & George A. Boardman, and the destruction of portions of the coastal archaeological record of the county by the impact of the Saxby Gale. In this documentary, David Black uses the anniversary as a focal event around which he summarizes the history of archaeological research in the county from the 18th century to recent times. This history provides a context for current concerns about the effects of environmental change.
