The Fairfield Excavations

Creator(s): Fairfield Museum & National Historic Site

Rediscovered in the late 1930s, the site of Old Fairfield Village was excavated early in the career of Wilfrid Jury, who was later responsible for excavating Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in Midland, Ontario. This exhibit investigates not only the recovery of historical artefacts, but also the process of archaeology as it existed 60 years ago, and its impact on a small community.
