Archaeological Sites

Archaeological SitesSince Quebec reveals real historic treasures, there are archaeological sites in many regions. Some sites are temporary: they give time to the archaeologists to excavate a precise site and gather artefacts to then display them in an museum exhibition, while other sites are permanent, to allow visitors to see the archaeologists at work, but also to appreciate the entire archaeological potential of Quebec. The parc national de Miguasha in Gaspésie, for example, tells life like it was about 300 million years ago with fossils and the reconstitution of the sea wildlife of the time. In Québec, the Îlot des Palais has an exhibition directly in the ruins of the Palais de l'Intendant, where you can see the artefacts found on the site. Université Laval's students are still excavating the site. The archaeologists are constantly looking for new sites to find new proofs of the European occupation before the establishment of the colony. Lately, a site has been revealed in Cap-Rouge. This site should be open to the public in the near future. The Musée d'archéologie in Montréal, for its part, shows you the proofs of the foundation of Montréal through exhibitions and it emphasizes archaeological excavations.
