Acadia Students Dig Up Wolfville History

It's springtime here at Acadia University! For many students, this can mean convocation, summer employment, traveling, or returning home. But it can also be an opportunity for interesting learning opportunities.

Each summer offers some truly unique experiences, from kayaking to archaeology. In HIST 2693: Field Archaeology, Acadia students literally dug through the layer's of Wolfville's history under the guidance of archaeologist Aaron Taylor. The course offered a special opportunity to develop new skills in a truly hands-on environment.
After conducting 10 days of field work outside Randall House Museum, where they acquired field skills and knowledge, the students returned to campus to process the artifacts in the laboratory.

In a relatively short, two-week dig, in only a small patch of the Wolfville landscape, the students unearthed hundreds of ceramic and pottery shards, dozens of nails, flint, a penny, and more, mostly dating back to the 19th century. It's surprising to see what kinds of things lie below the surface of our small town!
