This animation zooms in from satellite images of the Earth, to North America, to the Bay of Fundy, to the Tantramar marshes at the head of the Bay. “High tide” is shown filling the marshland (“pre-dyking”), and then with “Acadian dyking” is transformed into “Reclaimed land.” A star settles into the exact location of Mi’maq encampment, Acadian settlement and the later British settlement which spawns the Campbell Carriage Factory.
