Unearthing Brantford’s History

November 23, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Paul Racher, Principal with Archaeological Research Associates Ltd. (ARA), will talk about the excavation of the south side of Colborne Street which became a major archaeological site in Ontario. The site yielded nearly

400,000 artefacts, some from Brantford’s Golden Age of industry, and some from the time of Loyalist settlement. Still other artefacts are from the time of longhouse occupation, while others reveal a time as early as 500 BC.
Paul Racher will explain how the research was done and some of the fascinating discoveries unearthed.

Join the members of the Brant Historical Society on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016 at the Research & Academic Centre of Wilfrid Laurier University-Brantford Campus (Dalhousie at Charlotte Streets) in Room RCE-004 at 7:30 PM. This is a free event.
