Local Archaeology

While we were out today we came across a team of archaeologists working on a site just north of Brampton. I can't even begin to tell you how cool it was!! The boys have really enjoyed going to archaeology day at Crawford Lake and learning about how that Iroquois village was discovered. Seeing it all happen in front of them however, was even better. Apparently this is the site of a blacksmith shop from the 1850s. The archaeologists have found a lot of iron nails, some pottery shards, and even a tiny horseshoe. The boys were thrilled. The people were wonderful, and answered all of our questions. What a wonderful stop!
