This is the first major exhibition entirely dedicated to Québec’s archaeology, and it celebrates 50 years of archaeological discoveries in Québec. Two hundred important pieces are included.
Chosen from among work in collections and artefacts found in archaeological digs on more than 10,000 sites throughout Québec, these objects reflect and recount Québec’s past and uncover a remarkably diverse territory. The exhibition includes several items from the archaeological holdings of the Department of Culture and Communications of Québec (MCCQ) displayed for the very first time.
This exhibition, produced by Pointe-à-Callière, was made possible in part by the Government of Canada and with the collaboration of the Government of Quebec.
