Historical Society of Ottawa November Meeting

"An early archeological site near Kars" is the topic for the November 29 presentation by Ken Swayze.
 
The BfGv-3 Wellington Ridge site was discovered during a Stage 2 archaeological survey of a residential subdivision site near Kars, once a beach on a small island in the Champlain Sea. It dates from the Early Archaic, a little known time period only recently recognized in northeastern North America. The Ottawa Valley is an ideal region for discovery of archaeological Early Archaic sites because it was flooded for thousands of years and bedrock uplift has preserved the relic shorelines.
 
The meeting starts at 1:00 pm in the lounge of the Routhier Community Centre, 172 Guigues Street at Cumberland.
