Introduction: A Travel Through Time
Through observations, comparisons and consultations, archaeologists
have been able to work out a chronology of Quebec prehistory. This
chronology represents a reference tool, based on information from
sites in Quebec, Ontario and the State of New York. It nevertheless
remains a hypothetical construct.
However, over the past 150 years, increasingly sophisticated methods
and ever more refined analyses have been developed in prehistoric
archaeology in Quebec. The number of specialists working in the field
never ceases to grow. The following section presents a brief history
of how the discipline came into existence and gradually took shape
